"Aina(land)of Leilani" Kilauea eruption hanged life for those impacted by this unprecedented eruption, and explore the challenges and changes ahead as the island faces an uncertain future. In a matter of months, lava has consumed entire neighborhoods, destroying what has been for many the only home they have ever known. Madame Pele is showing the world her incredible force.
Rivers of molten lava have rendered thousands of acres on Hawaii island unrecognizable, and fire ignites the night sky. But for all her beauty, there is a price to pay. "The Aina of Leilani" painting depicts right before the flow of lava destroys the rainforest paradise of Leilani Puna along the beaches of Hawaii. Done in bright yellow reds oranges with blue sky, forest canopy and foreground.
