Open views in the highlands of Princeville, Kauai, dominated the landscape. Using a limited pallet allows the true essence of the moment to come out, simplified and present. Clarity and beauty are abundant with the trees, the horses, and the giant mountains. The air and environment of the Hawaiian islands allow for deeper breathing and a yearning for love.

The application of paint and use of color are tantamount for Daniel to represent the present moment. Daniel’s interest lies in the deep places of emotion that tell personal and universal narratives of fear, pain, love and beauty. His art acts as a conduit or bridge to fill emotional voids. Daniel’s process is dynamic and he invites the viewer to immerse themselves into their own stories so that the artwork may create a personal resonance. Daniel Kanow lives in Telluride, Colorado with his family. Art, family, and wilderness are his anchors for inspiration and motivation.
