Scoppettone and his wife Sherry lived with their daughter Dina on Kauai in 1979. Nearly every sunset that year was enjoyed by the young family and their friends, often at Ke’e Beach. Ke’e, known as 'the end of the road’ because that is what it is, is also considered the best location on the island to see the sunset and get a view of the Napali coastal cliffs in the rapidly changing light. Much like Monet’s paintings of French poplars and cathedrals, a platform for the exploration of the same subject in the context of light, is the the objective for both artist and viewer.
