Another blast from the past, 2009. This palette knife painting has plenty of drama going on. The ocean waves are pounding the shore. The coconut tree is holding on to it's coconuts and the clouds are drifting in the tropical breeze. The scene is from the Big island of Hawaii at Pu’uhonua O Honaunau ( the City Of Refuge).
Imagine you had just broken the sacred laws, the kapu, and the only punishment was death. Your only chance of survival is to elude your pursuers and reach the Pu'uhonua, a place of refuge. The Pu'uhonua protected the kapu breaker, defeated warriors, as well as civilians during the time of battle. No physical harm could come to those who reached the boundaries of the Pu'uhonua.
Original and prints available on my website www.daricemachel.com look for it in my “Palette Knife Paintings” gallery. 🌴🌴🌴🌴🌴🌴🌴🌴🌴
Remedy. This piece is about flowing movement, a calming flow, colours that ignite good feelings.
A visual 'remedy' of feel good!
Perfect vibe to bring to any room. D.C.
