Here on Maui, part of the sugar production process is burning the cane fields which is usually done very early in the mornings when the wind is quietest. It's a common site for early commuters headed down Haleakala Highway.
Alexander & Baldwin's Hawaii Commercial and Sugar company, begun in 1870, is going out of business over the next year and these cane burns will be a thing of the past. While it will be a good thing for air quality - it will be deleterious for Maui's economy and leaves an uncertain future for all of the currently lush green cane fields.
The painting itself is 24 x 18 inches, oil on textured canvas over wood and custom framed.
