Blue Hawaiian Moonlight, 24″ x 18″ Oil on canvas, was inspired by the song as performed by the late Gabby Pahinui. “Blue Hawaiian moonlight, shinning over the sea, take me to your island, where I long to be.” These lyrics give context to this painting. The imagery I try to capture, evokes childhood memories of a land that I hold dear and cherish. As the Hawaii state Motto expresses, “The Life of the Land is Perpetuated in Righteousness” Ua Mau Ke Ea O Ka Aina I Ka Pono
My focus is on scenes of Hawai’i where I was born, raised and retain a special love for the land and the people of the island state. My goal is to capture the natural beauty as I see and share that imagery with the viewer.
