This is a studio painting I created from a study done in Iao Valley on Maui. It was early morning and the sun was just peaking through the dense foliage. The transient light effect gave me the kick to paint this challenging scene. 

This piece is on canvas board and will need a frame for display.

Getting to Know Jamie

Jamie Roth went from ski bum in Utah to beach bum Maui in 1985 and hasn’t looked back since. Choosing to paint on location rather than from photos, he enjoys exploring Maui’s coastline and mountain ranges. His intention is not to paint a scene, but to paint a special moment. He wants the viewer to feel the place and feel the time of day when they look at his art. When he’s not painting, Jamie works as a nurse and spends time with his three kids. And of course he makes time for surfing!
