What a gorgeous capture, James!

James Temple replied:

These endangered chia trees grow in the mountains here on Molokai.

Always a very special flower! I love the legend associated with it. Featured in Hawaiiana. Aloha nui!!

James Temple replied:

Mahalo Jane, and for the feature in the Hawaiiana group!

This brings back great memories, James! We all knew that picking these flowers would bring rain and so we never touched them during Kona storm season! Beautiful capture and perfect "talk story" description! l/f :-))

Love the picture! Grew up on the South Side of Youngstown and Mill Creek park and the Old Mill was a wonderful part of my childhood. Now I have a wonderful memory hanging in my Family room.

Beautiful print! The colors are perfect and I am impressed with the quality of the matting and framing - very professionally done! In my case, the only thing I would change would be to get the nonglare glass, but that was my oversight and has nothing to do with the quality of the artwork I received. I love it!

I am very impressed with Fine Arts America. The frame print was produced and delivered in good speed. And I applaud the artist for a bravely passionate and intimate work of art.

Artist's Description

In Hawaii there is a common tree in the forest called the 'ohi'a tree, that is important in Hawaiian culture. It bears beautiful flowers called Lehua blossoms. Occasionally these blossoms are yellow or orange, but the most common color is red. There is a legend associated with the 'ohi'a tree and it's blossoms that goes like this: One day Pele, the goddess of the volcano, met a handsome young man named 'ohi'a. She desired to have him as her sweetheart. He confessed that he already was in love with another young girl, Lehua. This enraged Pele and she used her magical powers to transform the young man into the ugly 'ohi'a tree. Lehua was terribly sad and pleaded with Pele to return the young man back to his human form. Pele refused so Lehua begged the gods to help her to be reunited with 'ohi'a. Instead of changing 'ohi'a back to a human, the gods transformed Lehua into a lovely red blossom to adorn the 'ohi'a tree. Now when anyone picks a Lehua blossom, it will rain because the lover...

About James Temple

James Temple

I have lived in Hawaii for the past 16 years, 1200 feet above sea level, on the small rural island of Moloka'i. It is very quiet here, with only about 7,500 residents, sort of like living in a small town in the middle of the Pacific ocean. I appreciate the quiet life after spending 35 years in the advertising/design/illustration business in Chicago and San Francisco. I have always loved cooking. Eventually that love led me to a degree in the Culinary Arts. Since then I have designed and built a house, worked in restaurants, self-published three cookbooks, and took up photography. Now retired, I spend most of my time developing recipes and photographing them, plus researching and writing about Hawaii's culinary history on my food blog...
