The picture shows the Bayonne bridge in the background and in the foreground is a barge that was known to me is the old sea scalp barge in my hometown of Bayonne New Jersey as a child I spent much time roaming the waterfront around the old wrecks and debris that was allowed to accumulate at one time the area now is completely changed and is landscaped with parks by the city of Bayonne the picture is very special to me thank you

I love Pololu Valley and this photo captures the magical mood the Valley holds. I chose to frame it without a mat, and the reflection in vanity mirror is a good complement. I wouldn’t hesitate to buy anything from this artist again.

Artist's Description

"Mele Kalikimaka" is the English phrase "Merry Christmas" as pronounced in Hawaiian. The missionaries reduced the Hawaiian language to written form, enabling the Hawaiian people to read and write in their own language. Many words for which there were no clear Hawaiian language equivalents were translated phonetically. The words "Mele Kalikimaka" are a phonetic translation. When the missionaries and other Westerners first brought the custom of Christmas to the Hawaiian Islands, the Hawaiians had difficulty pronouncing Merry Christmas and turned it into words that rolled more easily off their tongues. This was one of nine 4'x8' paintings by Eugene Francis Savage (1883-1978) called "Island Feast". The paintings were commissioned by the Matson Shipping line in 1948. This image was restored to its original state by James Temple from an old lithographed menu cover used in the dining room of the refurbished Matson flagship "Lurline".

About James Temple

James Temple

I've lived in Hawaii since 2002, 1200 feet above sea level, on the small rural island of Moloka'i. It is very quiet here, with only about 7,400 residents. I appreciate the quiet life after spending 35 years as a commercial illustrator, senior art director and design director for major advertising agencies and design studios in Chicago, San Francisco and Palo Alto California. I've always loved cooking. In 2002 that love led me to a degree in the Culinary Arts just before moving to Hawaii. Since then I designed and built a house, worked in local restaurants, self-published three cookbooks, and took up photography as a hobby. Now retired, I spend most of my time developing recipes and photographing them, plus researching and writing...
