“L” at Ball Mountain by Carolyn Hesse-Low


Carolyn is attracted to the feeling that a scene offers. What appeals to her is a subject that has depth to explore. The “L” has historical significance. It is on the hill above Lahaina and stands for Lahainaluna High School.  The “L” has been there since 1904. Lahainaluna means “overlooking Lahaina.”  This 30-foot letter “L” at about the 2000-foot elevation on Mt. Ball, part of the West Maui Mountains, is created and maintained by the students of Lahainaluna High School by clearing the plants and weeds (and putting in lime to prevent re-growth) on that section of the hillside. The hike to the “L” is very difficult, and the trail is now closed to the public. Owning an original painting honoring this school’s heritage would be a treasure.

Carolyn’s paintings have been shown in over 100 museum exhibitions and in countless galleries and art institutes nationally. She has been selected to paint in plein air painting invitationals and juried events throughout the country.
