Hawaii in Summer is one of my newest mini Waimea Plantation Cottage Series paintings. Those of you who have been following my painting blogs for a couple years know that I can paint these small Hawaiian sugar cottages endlessly.
This piece forgoes the usual island cottage blue and utilizes the colors of the sun. Bright orange and red flowers bring cheer and texture to the front of the house while tall coconut palms and bougainvillaea prosper in the back.
Personally, I do understand why I paint these island houses—they represent the good life and maybe even a future life in the islands and buy judging on how many of these I’ve sold through the years, others can certainly relate!
