This is an amazing painting.. totally unique. Look closely and you will see that this painting is inverted. The only element that is centered is the paddler. Within his canoe is a full harvest of Kalo. He is “Going Home” to his 'Kalo patch' in Keanae from Hana. What the artist is showing us is a glimpst into the farmers mind as he dreams of his home. On this day, he has delivered his fresh crop to Hana, a short canoe ride away. See that every element of this work is the shape of the kalo leaf. Every shape is in the sky and on the water reflects the kalo leaf..
