Three Bad Photos = One Nice Painting

This is the pasture and sky I wanted to paint. The photo doesn’t do it justice – the bright orange sky and swath of clouds are really beautiful.  From this view I’m too low to see the West Maui Mountains in the distance, but they are there.

The molasses grass which is in bloom now, covers the embankment along the side of the road and fills the pastures.

The mountain top, clear this morning, from a spot where I can see it.

Mix it all together in my imagination, put paint to canvas, and voila! This is how I made “Peahi Sunset.”
