Wailea Honu

Rich Tesner's avatar Rich Tesner

Beneath the warm Hawaiian waves, drifts a gentle giant. This Hawaiian Green Sea Turtle ("Honu" in Hawaiian) is depicted swimming towards an underwater cavern near Wailea Beach, which sits on the southwestern shore of Maui. A soft mosaic of color shines upon the turtle, as it appears to float above the coral-covered lava rock. As with most sea turtles, this Honu seems to be taking a leisurely swim through the tranquil waters of the South Pacific. This painting is 36"(w) x 24"(h), acrylic on canvas. 2017.
