6" x 8" Acrylic on Panel
This scene is an area in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park that has less vegetation than other sections, but I rather enjoyed the subtle colors and the unique arching tree in the foreground. The painting turned out to have a slight impressionistic bent, which was not planned but which seems to suit this landscape. To my disappointment, when I made the visit to this park, the Kilauea volcano was not erupting at that time. The closest I have come to viewing the eruptions is on the TV news ! For viewing the eruptions , you may watch webcams here
I have also begun two more miniature paintings inspired by my visit to the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, and will post them here very soon . These studies are for reference for future larger major works.
