Btw - this is actually one of my favourite silk paintings. It is inspired by Maui's breathtaking landscapes around the Haleakala volcano range. Additionally I tried something new with this painting, namely adding a humouresque part in form of two hikers in this painting which are so tiny that you can only recognize them if you look very close. I have painted them in fact with a magnifying glass and it was a whole lot of fun. I added a close-up of the part of the painting.
