What interested me is the “fluid nature of the place” and that the streams and their connection to Kawainui marsh were vital in the Hawaiian’s way of living and connected to all that sustained them. The Hawaiians in the past considered this area a very sacred area which sustained them in their fishing and farming. This refers to the stories of the place or “Sacred Place”. All of this Wahi Pana sites were related to water and water sources. The life blood of the islands and it’s people. My most memorable image as I painted the marsh was the peaceful openness of the views and the beautiful wild life. I have always gravitated to water sources that reflect a natural sense of peace and movement.
