Hoyle’s inspiration to paint this historic river scene came from its buildings. Their rusted tin roofs and bleached wood siding reflected an overwhelming array of colors into the meandering Hanapepe River.
This setting reminds Hoyle of times past, when Hanapepe and Kekaha, Kauai had a profusion of these charming plantation buildings. Chinese and Japanese contract laborers raised themselves out of the sugarcane fields and began flourishing as merchants along the river here. The decline after World War II of the sugar industry and subsequent relocation of major sea and air ports to Lihue have affected this once-bustling riverfront.

Today, this rural river scene no longer exists. Progress and Mother Nature have conspired to eliminate these structures. Hoyle, “The Keeper of the Past,” has brought back this historical scene for us. He has given us the opportunity to relive Kauai’s rural past through his eyes and through his expressive brush!
