Mahalo Ponies

Mahalo Ponies
16" x 20", Oils

Private Collector - Devils Lake ND

Mahalo means thank you in Hawaiian and this piece is a tribute to "Iwa La Ni" (Bird of Heaven), a Hawaiian bird from heaven bringing comfort, encouragement, and prayers to share with the children of this land. Each flower represents a specific angel that guides her. The other three ponies are traveling companions. Two feathers are that of growth and calmness. The colored squares are the transition from the mystery of the past to the growth of purity.
