HANAUMA BAY (8X10 MATTED)

For many years, I have experienced Oahu's Hanauma Bay, a marine sanctuary and one of Hawaii's premier tourist attractions. However, the problem with Hanauma Bay is that it has become too popular. At one point it was estimated that over 40,000 people per day were impacting this unique marine habitat. But recently, in an effort to save it, the state of Hawaii has worked to limit access to the bay to 5,000 visitors a day. I was approached by the University of Hawaii to do an original painting to raise funds and awareness of the bay's unique marine life. This painting took me over a month to complete. I first went down to the bay and photographed it from different angles. I then went back to my studio and did a split-level view both above and below the water. I feel this painting will do much to create a greater awareness to the many beautiful creatures that make Hanauma Bay their home.
