G is for Green



In past posts, I've featured photos of the famous Iao Needle, but I've never seen an artist paint it with such a vivid green color as the internationally recognized Maui artist Curtis Wilson Cost.

On his website, the words "heightened realism" are used to describe his work, and I feel this wording is perfect to describe his style of art.

Found your site from RonLin365 and just had to visit. I remember this! My hubby and I visited Maui in 2005 and found the Iao Needle on the first day. We actually stayed in Wailea - what a beautiful place.
