We stayed at a resort on the west side of the Big Island. I did a grocery store run at sunset, and I felt like I was on Mars. There was nothing but lava and these yellow grasses that somehow managed to grow on the lava, and the angled light made the grasses glow.
The next day, I painted the line where that wild natural environment met the green grass and palm trees of the resort. It was sunset then too, and I especially enjoyed the colors in the distance.
