Artists In Hawaii—1998

As is my habit, during my solo drive-about in the State of Hawaii I stopped and spoke with people here and there along the way. In two weeks, I spoke with maybe a hundred people: old, young, local, tourist, friendly, and reserved. Here are photographs of several artists, one of my favorite kinds of person, that I met in Hawaii. It has been twenty years so I hope they do not mind being posted in my blog. I want to say that I enjoyed their company. These are all working artists, so if you like their work, give them a call!

Leis of Job’s Tears Seeds For Women

And Boar Tusk Necklaces For Men.

Kapulani (Dutchee) knew where to find the nicest seeds

on their property in the high lands;

and her husband hunted wild boar there with his friends.

She became my pen pal for a while,

trying to teach me Ōlelo Hawaiʻi,

but she would not sell me a tusk because I am a woman.

Kuan: observe

Shih: the world / the region of sufferers

Yin: all the sounds of the world, in particular,

the crying sounds of beings, verbal or mental, seeking help
