Hanauma Bay Resident

12"x16" Acrylic on gallery wrap canvas

This painting was a joy to paint !  I love to paint roosters as they are so colorful and pretty--  oops, handsome!  Wild jungle fowl are abundant on all the Hawaiian Islands.    For the most part they are skittish of people,  but this guy and some hens were not so shy and one of the hens even laid an egg right near me as I photographed them at Hanauma Bay,  a popular snorkeling beach on the island of Oahu .    Besides the beach there, there is a park and lots of surrounding brush, etc, where I suppose the jungle fowl called home,  thus the title of the painting.     Below is a photo I took overlooking Hanuama Bay.

Hanauma Bay - Oahu, Hawaii

 You can easily see the coral in the ocean shown in this photograph.   Lots of colorful fish and turtles for the snorkeler to enjoy here.    The water is not very deep at all for quite a ways from the beach itself.    This bay is more on the Southeast side of Oahu, near the suburb called Hawaii Kai. 

Please feel free to contact me if interested in the painting above or any other artwork you may like to purchase on this blog.   I welcome your comments and questions !
