Consistent with Hoyle’s admiration of blooming trees, he renders the
vibrance of the Royal Poinciana, or “flame tree.” This image was painted on location in Puhi.
With his unbridled desire to express emotion and a gusto for rich color, only Hoyle could paint
such an expression.
|By juxtapositioning color, Hoyle conveys the subtle movement of nature or,
as he calls it, his “colorful environments.” The lavender and pink clouds loom over Mount
Waialeale as they glide through the sky. Trees yield to the gusty tradewinds. In the softly
waving grass lie the petals of the Royal Poinciana’s brilliant red blooms.
brilliance of color surrounding the cascading branches of this regal tree against the rich, scenic
landscape is exceedingly powerful. The image urges one to daydream private visions of a relaxing
moment, remembering the feeling of escaping to lush, lovely paradise.
