Just Over the Rocks

I was drawn to the dark rich colors of the lava rocks as they spilled into the bright blue waters of Big Beach at Makena State Park in Maui. Soon after I began painting, a steady stream of people began to climb the rocks, disappearing to the other side, only to return a short time later with wide smiling faces. I learned later that a nude beach was located just beyond the rocks.
