There's a magical place on Hawaii island called Kealakekua Bay. Original home of Hawaiian Kings and Kahunas (priests), It is also the place where the famed British explorer Captain Cook landed and Hawaiian culture first met Western civilization. In 2005, my dear dear friend Jean who lives near there took me to a special concert for my birthday at a local house overlooking the bay. The property was ringed with white plumerias, and this painting is of some of those blossoms.
