Kaupo Maui Church

A 12X16 transparent watercolor of St. Joseph Catholic church and cemetery located on the north shore of Maui.


We reached this remote church at sunset in Kaupo. The beauty of the church, the light on the ocean and backdrop of the mountain was only surpassed with an upwelling of emotion for the community this place represented and the loved ones buried there. The cemetery had a presence very much like the Pinery cemetery located on the L’Anse Indian reservation, where my ancestors are buried.
