Pu'u'ma'eli'eli | Oahu, Hawaii

An incredible sunrise rendered in purples, oranges and yellows, of Kaneohe Bay on the windward side of Oahu. Yachts and other boats navigate the early morning in the calm bay. Pu'u'ma'eli'eli is a lookout point above the bay to the west. The currents are visible from this vantage and the light reflects off the water. The land and boats are silhouetted against the light. 

a note from the artist

I watched the light expand over the bay from the pitched darkness of the Pu’u’ma’eli’eli lookout. It rolled over the vista like an aged painting on a dark table. The light brushed the landscape so quiet that I felt as though I could hear the sound of the sunrise  like a slow crescendo that began with the faintest note and rose until there was no sound but that of day.

Edition of 50

About the prints: I print on a premium substrate that is unparalleled in depth and luminosity. The material refracts light in such a way that light travels laterally through the paper as well as reflects to the audience creating a brilliant effect that many mistake to be rear illumination. Each print is then face mounted to acrylic and sandwiched to a protective backing. The artwork is then framed or a recessed mount is added to the back to float on the wall. I offer Tabacchino and other handmade framing options. Available starting at 30” and as long as 80” with custom sizes. Below are examples of a 36” edition in a variety of frames with and without liners. More arrangements are available. Liners are available in Black, White, Beige. See FRAMES in the menu above for more frames and liner options.
