Hanalei Bay Rocks, Kauai

"Hanalei Bay Rocks"
9 x 12 inches
acrylic on canvas panel

I left before sunrise to find a place to paint. I am always anxious and nervous before I have found my subject and have chosen a motif. The sun was coming up and the road turned along the north coast of the island. I saw what looked like a nice place to park. I was lucky enough to find this view at the bottom of a short path. The waves were crashing against the lava rocks with tremendous force sending water and mist flying. Per chance the swell was coming in at an angle such that I wasn't getting soaked. Although I do confess I did go scrambling away a few times as some of the big ones came pretty close.
