HAWAII SCENIC GALLERY

HAWAII SCENIC GALLERY

 

I have spent a great deal of time in Hawaii. In 1964, when I was a graduate student, my professor, Gerard Kuiper, assigned me to spend six summer weeks atop Mauna Kea, on the "big island" of Hawaii, testing the mountain for a possible astronomical observatory. We found excellent results and years later this became the premier observatory in the world. In the 1970s and 1980s, I made many observing runs with Dale Cruikshank and Dave Tholen at Mauna Kea. In recent years I have been teaching a summer course at the University of Hawaii Hilo campus and have a residence at Punalu'u. These ventures have given me many opportunities to make painting expeditions around the islands, especially the island of Hawaii.
