This is a very special painting for me because it is based on a song that deeply touched me. The song is "Old Man Pueo" by Keola Beamer. The Pueo, or Hawaiian Owl is very special in the Hawaiian culture. Part of the first verse says:
Old Man Pueo, he was standin' on a stone, his body framed by sunset and the sea.
Old Man Pueo, he's always so alone, his feathers, caught the colors in the sky.

The song is also a prayer for strength in the midst of difficult times. I deal with a chronic illness on a daily basis and I always feel this song speaks what is in my heart.

This painting has been in my mind to paint for a long time and has been on my easel for over 3 hard months. I have slowly worked away at it and am very pleased to see my vision come to completion. 

I'm not sure if I will be putting this up for sale or not. If you're interested in buying it, contact me and we can talk.
