“Award Winning Piece”
As an artist, I’m not simply trying to capture a scene on canvas, but also thoughts, feelings, the essence and memory of a place. For me, Torch Ginger Flame is my most precious jewel. Everything I am as an artist I have poured into this piece. The translucent, undulating lines of the floating waves invite the viewer to dip their toes in, to join in the glorious dance that is nature in all her wild, wily ways.
Rarely do the prestigious Art Maui organization select paintings of flowers to place in their annual competition. Flower-themed artwork is so common among Hawaiian artists it is practically a cliché. Yet, they saw something special in Torch Ginger Flame, as it was selected as a winner in 2012.
