Portfolio > Ki'i heads and Hawaiian beach scenes

Hawaii, paintings of Hawaii, Oahu, North Shore Oahu, surfing adventures,
No sit, falling coconut!!

My son in law took me on an early morning surf adventure to North Shore on Oahu Hawaii. As he surfed, I had the chance to explore the beach up there between Sunset Beach and Bonzai pipeline. I came across this scene and thought it was really cool. I figure some poor dope found out the hard way that it's not smart to sit under a coconut tree. I had about 1 hour of light to work with when I painted this, intending to complete it the next day. After I looked at it for a day or so I realized it said what I wanted it to say so I left it in it's spontaneous stage. It seemed to convey the feeling of that morning just right.
