Hawaii is full of friendly and understanding people. My friend Kristina is one of those people. So when she reminded me of a small debt involving a washer/dryer, I thought it was cool that she wanted a painting instead of monetary compensation. I decided to go with this fun 10"x20" shape. Kristina's favorite birds are the 'Apapanes and I thought it would be perfect to have the ALOHA sign in a plumeria tree. The results are awesome. I love this painting and I'm happy to finally deliver on a forgotten deal we made.
