The Hawaiian islands just might be my favorite place on Earth and we were fortunate to be able to spend a week there after Christmas 2018. While there I learned about the concept of makai and mauka. Makai means “towards the ocean” and mauka means “toward the mountains” and the words are used to tell folks which side of the road something is on. I could do a whole year of Hawaiian themed renders but the first two I wanted to attempt were a representation of the Makai/Mauka dichotomy. As this image looks towards the mountains, expect the next in the series to look towards the ocean. Mahalo for looking! I hope you enjoy them!!
PS: We saw many waterfalls in Maui and Ian asked that I include more waterfalls in my work. Here you go Ian!!
