16x20, Oil, NFS

Painted in the studio just after a trip to the sacred place of Kalaupapa several years ago, Molokai to visit the Hansen's Disease community, now a National Park. I am revisiting the memories in order to paint another scene to represent the peace found there., hoping to put aside the turmoil of the world at least temporarily. Limited palette:burnt sienna, chromatic black, yellow ochre and titanium white. with extensive palette knife. Note how the burnt sienna appears ray and the aromatic black appears 'blue'.
