Glad this painting has made its way to a new home, the piece~ 'Mauna', inspired by the spirit of Pele of the island of Hawaii, has been SOLD. The image includes a spirit hula dancer facing the volcano, under the full moon. A pueo, the Hawaiian owl is her animal ally flying just over her shoulder, and the Ohia tree of Hawaii is just in front of her. Mauna Kea covered in snow looms behind with its powerful pressence.
In the dark night sky, the star pattern of Pledies is subtle over the horizon, which is part of the Hawaiian original mythology.
Hope has appreciated the power and blessings of being on this unique land and this painting was an opportunity to express her interpretation of the energy of Hawaii and its natural beauty.
