Last volcano painting on my last piece of black hard board.  Blocking in the composition. I hope to show how powerful #8 fissure has become and is unrelenting in its flow to grow the Big Island of Hawaii. ~Liz

Thanks for your encouragement, EmmaLee!

Sketch and blocking in first layer of  color in composition, after the value sketch. Now I can see that I have to adjust the horizon.  Going to my ukulele group today while painting is drying to touch.~Liz

 :thankyou: MARYANNE AND BILL!


 I’ve been playing ukulele with a group that was started at our church several years ago.  Today, I helped song lead and play and help provide leadership as needed.  We have around 50 people in our group which is 3 groups of different levels and with hula dancers.  We play second Sunday in church and at retirement and nursing homes, sometimes funerals, church socials and the like.  We play for fun mostly and don’t take ourselves too seriously, spiritual songs and hymns in English and Hawaiian, secular and country music, oldies, sing-a-longs for our ‘performances’.  I sometimes play my guitar instead which is my preferred instrument.  My husband and I sing together, too sometimes.  He also plays ukulele and is a good song leader.  What kind of music do you play, Bill?
Will try to finish my painting this weekend. ~Liz

Good that you are documenting this Liz.... Future generations might get a better understanding of the immensity and savagery of it all from your paintings, and those that have lived through, even on the "safe" islands will want the memories too.

 :thankyou: Linley, you’re very right what you’re saying.  I will remember this eruption and how painting helped me sort my feelings of Mother Nature’s work.

The 8th of 24 fissures became a massive cone.  Lava from its vent continues to flow like rapids to the ocean after consuming communities and filling up an entire bay.  Near the bottom is the area of a geothermal plant that was overrun by lava.  ~Liz

Very dynamic and the whole thing is horrific.  Saw a clip earlier today of a wide river of lava.  There was audio, but the poster indicated it was the high wind and it wasn't the sound of the lava flow.  Was like red and yellow flowing water.
The time it (a work) takes is the time it takes.

Great job, Liz. I love how you created the bright glare of the lava over the volcano.

My heart is just breaking for these people.  As beautiful and exciting as the lava flow is, it is ruining the futures of so many people.

Your painting is so beautiful, though.
