If you were expecting a Hawai'i-inspired theme you'd be right. I felt compelled to choose something to reflect my island home, as temporary as it may be.
Our third colorplay theme is called "Kilauea" after Hawai'i's active volcano.
When I think of Kilauea, I think of the blackness of cooled lava, and it's myriad textures, from slow moving undulation, to glassy bits spewn forth, to the bubbly a'a rock formed when hot lava meets cool ocean. I think of red heat, and the red lehua blossom sacred to Pele the volcano goddess and Laka, the goddess of hula. And I think of the chartreuse of the young uluhe fern barely veiled by the sulfur mists of the volcano's steam vents.
This theme could be interpreted as volcano in general, or Kilauea specifically. You can use my photos as inspiration, or work with the palette of red, orange, chartreuse, black and greys. Choose the jumping off point that excites you!
