This was a very special place, in Kapoho, The Ponds, that existed on the Big Island of Hawaii. Today it is covered in lava from the Kilauea Volcano. It was filled with abundant sea life. You could actually swim with the fish and sea turtles. I was very inspired to create a memory of this very special spot. I hope this draws you into this special place where nature shared itself with humans. I used oils and oil sticks to paint on Oleo paper. Enjoy!
