This is an exquisite painting and a beautifully-produced card. I have had several aviation-themed cards from FAA and this is of the same very high standard that I have become used to. Fabulous company to deal with and fast and secure shipping every time.

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.

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

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.

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...
