Diamond Head is Hawaii’s most well known volcano featured in countless movies and magazine covers, home to multi million dollar homes flanking its base, which sits like primitive cardboard boxes, ..ready to fall flat at the slightest whim, to the deep mysterious sea surrounding its shores,. The gentile wispy waves which caress its shores look enchantingly like a spiders silky web toying with its prey, belying the fact of its pure violent energy contained within its mysterious deep. 24″ × 36″ original oil on 3x prime canvas hand painted by Hawaii seascape artist Joseph Ruff.

    I LOVE your description Joseph. Your stong, vibrant colours are so incredible and make your work instantly recognisable as a ‘Ruff’! This is fantastic artwork.

  • Abd I LOVE your fantastic comments too …coming from such a talented pretty artist as yourself!! …Due to the recent destruction caused by Tsunami’s..I couldn’t help but wonder/feeling this way …so Fragile are the works of Man in the face of Nature’s wrath!! …aloha, Lynda Robinson! Joseph…(ever watch “Lost in Space”?)

    Hmmmmm – ‘Lost in Space’ is sorta ringing a distant bell in my brain Joseph!!! I can’t really remember it though – just an echoey voice at the beginning (or maybe it was the end) saying ‘loooooooosssssst in spppppppaaaaaaaaccccceeee’!!!

  • You are sosooo funny !! the robot, the black round one with the bubble glass head and the twiroling antana on his side ..this little kid named Will Robinson( robots master ) had a sister named penny ?..and the robot would always address them so formal like, “Will Robinson”, “Penny Robinson”…cant Say “Lynda Robinson” without thinking im talking like that robot!! ..and anyway you are so young to remember such silly things
