Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

Years ago I have made a photo of the side entrance of the oldest hotel of Hawaii named Moana Surfrider.

You can see the East side entrance of the hotel in my painting; however, you cannot recognize in my artwork the real beauty of the building. It is safely situated between the Waikiki City Police Station on the Kalakaua Avenue and the moana (in Hawaiian it means the ocean, or the open ocean).

People of Hawaii - especially the native Hawaiians - are the most friendly human beings I've ever met. And, the women of Hawaii are really beautiful. I hope, you can recognize it in my painting (at least). Or maybe, when you live there, you see everything with different eyes, and everything seems to be lovely, pleasant, enjoyable, pretty and pleasing :-)

Ke aloha no me ka mahalo kaua! = Aloha indeed with mahalo to you and me!

Aloha – love, affection, sympathy, greetings
Mahalo – thank, bless, gratitude

The painting doesn't need any frame and is ready to hang. In case you prefer framed images on your walls, you can always frame this artwork using floater frames for example.

The painting comes with my certificate of authenticity.
