TITLE: "Sanctuary"

Art Inspiration story: This is a large original watercolor painting of a Humpback Whale just off the Lahaina, Maui Hawaii coast. The warm sun is glistening and dancing off the beautiful tale of this whale as it glides back into the tropical ocean water of it's vacation home in Hawaii.

When I was 16 I went with my family on vacation to Maui, Hawaii. As an artist I was very excited to visit Front St. in down town Lahaina to see all the art gallery's. It was on that trip I met the artist Christian Riese Lassen out infront of his gallery as he was live painting. It was amazing to see his art work in person and talk with him. He was so kind and inspiring. I decided on that trip that I was going to be a professional artist.

It breaks my heart what happened this last year there with the wildfires burning most of the city. My heart goes out to the locals there!

20% of this paintings purchase price I will donate to the buyers choice of non profits for the Lahaina locals recovery.
