“Kailua Beach Sunrise
by jyruff”: http://www.redbubble.com/people/jyruff/art/7734... Getting up early has its benefits although I was on my way to surf another beach with better waves , I could not help but stop in awe for this scene unfolding on 3 mile long Kailua beach. A coral white and pink sand beach that fronts the main drive along kailua town had no one else on it but silly me, cause of its small surf is considered a family beach and families here dont get out of the house to come here untill well after 10 am. 8″ × 16″ original pen sketch and oil on gesso Panel board seascape painting hand painted by Hawaii seascape artist Joseph Ruff ( my first oil on masonite panel board.).
