Shave Ice is delicious on a hot Hawaiian afternoon. I made this Shave Ice Shack special for Ko'olina. At Ko'olina, there are many lagoons that are perfect with calm water for easy swimming, snorkeling and toe-dipping. I thought that a little shave ice shack would make this pristine area that much better.
I tried something a little different with this painting. Usually I paint mountains in the background, usually they are purple. But with no mountains to see beyond Ko'olina, I decided to bring purple to the foreground and play with the shadows being cast from everything. From the shack to the umbrellas and palms, I love it!
I want to hang out under one of the umbrellas, slurping my shave ice and cooling down from an afternoon of swimming, snorkeling and playing in the sun.
