When the artist and his wife first discovered the Napali coast and cliffs, it was when they drove Kuhio Highway north to the end of the road, and then parked the car to walk down on to the beach at Ke’e cove. There on the sand they took a right to walk along the water. After a minute or two they turned around to look back and were surprised to discover this grand view of lava rock cliffs at the head of a rugged and colorful coastline, stretching endlessly into the distance. Cool shadows from the constantly shifting clouds cast the midground cliffs in a contrasting way to the turquoise cove and sandy beach in the foreground, both fully drenched in sunlight. It is a good reminder of how quickly the weather changes at the edge of this ancient island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.
