About the Piece

“Looking down over the coastline from Captain Cook on the Big Island at about 6:00 in the evening, I saw the patterns of light and shadow over the ocean and the thick blanket of clouds hovering over it. I felt a sense of foreboding from the weight of the clouds; but felt the peace of the light in the distance.”

-Gregory Pai
