Sunrise on Mauna Kea. Hawaii.

12x16in. Mauna Kea 2019. Transparent watercolor. $500

These were part of conversations I had in my dreams about Mauna Kea last year. This vision was of a pre-contact morning with the black lava colored by the dawning sun. I think the fresh lava flows I saw in the 70s as a kid impressed me with their intense color and how black could reflect as much light as white. Those glistening flashes of light came back in the dream of gazing out across the lava fields and I heard a voice say: The earth is the Lord’s and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it, for he founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the waters. I woke thinking, Ae, yes it’s true, our home in Hawai’i truly is a world founded upon the seas, a beautiful world we get to live upon with all the other creatures.
