Original: Acrylic on Masonite
On the west side of Kauai there is a long, empty stretch of beach called Polihale. I happened to be on a trip to the island once, in the mid- to late '90s, at the same time as Bryan Iguchi, and we decided to go camp out and play on the beach there one night. There was a full moon out and it lit up the ocean so bright that we were actually able to paddle out and surf.
I just have this snapshot in my head from being out there, looking back at the ocean and seeing this wave crest and break in the moonlight. Just the richness of these incredible turquoise-blue colors as they went into the barrel and the plume of spray that whipped off the top of the wave made such a striking image, it left a big imprint on my mind. I had to paint it.
