No'ono'o Pono/ Focus

"No'ono'o Pono / Focus" aka "The Paddler"
Hawaiian Islands, 2010

This is a montage of three photographs, representing a journey of body and spirit.
It's about maintaining focus, especially on one's guide or "aumakua,"
while pursuing one's dreams or goals...

The paddler was photographed at Kailua Bay in Kona, the Whale along the Kohala Coast, and the coastline is of Maui.

Originally created for a local fund-raising project.

Prints available on Fine Art Paper, Metal, or Canvas

I bought this print at the Holualoa Gallery during the last Kona Coffee Festival. It’s an amazing image. I stayed at a place on the island with a view of Maui in the distance and wondered what it must have been like for the native Hawaiians to travel between the islands long ago. This was the perfect image to satisfy my wondering mind. Keep up the great work!

...could have sworn I already commented on this piece of art. Apparently not though.
Great work. Really nice tones and clarity. Love the detail on the back and overall "mood".
Just perfect
