Last Cane Field

Last Cane Field
12 x 15 soft pastels on Art Spectrum Pastel board

I chose this cloud picture because of the drama in the clouds that seem to arise from behind the hill on the right. I also loved the freshly plowed field of our good old red dirt and the stand of unharvested sugar cane in the distance on the right. This is a scene found along the road connecting leeward Oahu and the North Shore. Until recently, all that could be seen was never ending fields of pineapples and sugar cane. It is very different now.

Amazing! Clouds are a part of a nature that can be so monumental and this climax is captured beautifully.
