The beaches of Oahu, Hawaii are some of the most beautiful in the world. Lanikai Surf is an oil painting on canvas inspired by the alluring beach of Lanikai, near Kailua, a charming town on the windward coast of Oahu. The word “Lanikai” means “heavenly sea” in Hawaiian, and with just one look at this artwork, it is easy to imagine how it got that name. The tropical, turquoise-blue water stretches out to the horizon. As the waves break on the soft sand beach, the swirling white seafoam rushes forth. The sand is fine and powdery, except for the crushed seashells which dot its surface and add a a pleasant element to this oil painting. Offshore, the Mokulua islands (locally known as "The Mokes") jut out, and the ocean on the horizon turns a deep dark blue. Lanikai Surf juxtaposes the intimacy of the waves kissing land in the foreground and the sublime, impersonal grandeur of the unfathomable ocean in the distance.
