Haiku View...Maui

Marissa's View 

Here's another Maui sketch...this time from Up-Country, in Haiku. Unfortunately the photo doesn't do the sketch justice. The left side is all washed out.I don't have a scanner here, so I have to try to photograph it...yuk! Anyways, it'll do.  
I love it so much up in Haiku. It's the country, what I'm used to. Away from the tourists and the crowds and the traffic. It's just so relaxing. We had a nice visit with our friend's Marisa and Chip yesterday and as we sat on the deck, Bill played guitar, and I chatted and sketched the view. I was taken by the atmospheric sense of distance, and that's what first inspired me to sketch this scene...the light is great up there! I loved the hill, and how the graceful tree shape echoed it...and I just love those crooked fenceposts. It was a bonus that as I was finishing up, some cows and a horse wandered through the scene!
