I managed to paint only one of the many cairns on this beach. This is the first beach on the Kalalau trail, it is very rocky and the surf is rough…so the rocks are wonderfully smooth. Previous hikers have stacked many, many rock cairns on this beach. If you are a hiker you know that a stack of rocks on a trail is called a cairn, and it symbolizes that you are to head that direction on a trail. To find many of them together, is not only impressive, given a tremendous surf, but inspiring and encouraging.

  1. I absolutely love this painting. You have captured the power, as well as, the beauty of this incredible cove. The carins remind me of Robin’s stacked rocks which also have a meaning.

Please let me know what you think
