Years ago, Rhia took a photo of the oldest hotel Moana Surfrider, Westin Resort & Spa's in Hawaii, and she used the photograph as a reference for her painting.
In Rhia's "Moana - Girls from Waikiki," you see the hotel's eastside door; however, you cannot recognize the building's real beauty in this artwork because it shows only the side entrance of the famous Moana Surfrider. You can find this hotel safely situated between the Waikiki City Police Station on Kalakaua Avenue and the Moana (the ocean in Hawaiian).
People of Hawaii - especially the native Hawaiians - are the most friendly human beings Rhia has ever met. And, the women of Hawaii are gorgeous, stunning, and irresistible. Conjure up a picture and recognize in her painting the loveliness of the place, the charming spirit where everything seems to be glamorous, pleasant, and enjoyable.
Aloha a mahalo = Love and gratitude
Aloha means love, affection, sympathy, or simple greetings.
Mahalo means to thank, bless, or feel gratitude.
The painting's size is 50 x 40 x 2 cm, the sides are painted in colours of the work of art, and it is ready to hang on a sawtooth bracket fixed to the wooden stretcher bars of the canvas.
Materials used: stretched canvas, professional grade acrylic paints and high-quality varnish.
The second photo shows you how this painting can look on a wall.
