Kaimana is the Hawaiian word for the sparking diamonds in the water. This painting was done last Saturday evening sitting on the banks of the north River . I'm thinking a lot of my dad now- he is in Hawaii and I miss him. He grew up on the North River- that water is a real connection I feel I have with my dear Dad. I also grew up with a good friend who's house was on the river. We spent many a day on it. I love it- the beautiful ever changing tidal water .Luckily I can still walk down to it from where I live now.
