One evening while enjoying a nice soak in the hot-tub, a gentleman who had seen me painting a landscape off our roof asked me about painting a landscape in honor of his marriage. After toweling off, it was agreed and a commission was in place.

As always, the canvas began with some initial figurative exploration, Sharpe in hand. Peter Lik's beautiful photograph guided the way, until I was able to get to Hawaii myself.
