Limited Edition Giclee (10/50) - Artist Enhanced with Mixed Metal Leaf on canvas 24" h x 24" w “Breath is sacred in part because it carries the words of the pule (prayer).” (Pukui, Haertig & Lee) "“A Prayer For Our Brothers” is about respect between all men, between brothers, sons and fathers, feeling the love of family, honoring the ancestors that stand behind us in time, remembering those that we have lost together and a shared prayer for the future of our families. In this painting a father and son embrace with strength and grace and a deep knowing is shared between them in this moment that they will support and love each other always. The silver leaf is meant to symbolize the Mana that flows from them, between them and around them as they share the sacred breath of life. Mahalo to Ke’eaumoku Kapu and his son Kaulana Kapu for posing for this painting. Thank you for helping me bring this painting to life and trusting a total stranger with such a sacred expression." - Christina DeHoff

Limited Edition Giclee (15/50) - Artist Enhanced with Mixed Metal Leaf on canvas 32" h x 24" w "She is regal, elegant, graceful and can express emotion in a gesture.

Limited Edition Giclee (2/25) - Artist Enhanced with Mixed Metal Leaf on canvas 20" h x 30" w "In Polynesian culture, mana is a spiritual quality considered to have supernatural origin—a sacred impersonal force existing in the universe," shares Christina. "MANA is energy and the internal power of any living thing. Hawaiians believe all things have mana. The aina (land), pohaku (rocks), plants, people, gods and goddesses." "This painting is an exploration of what mana feels like to me. Mana is magic made real. The presence of the spirit world and our life force expressed as one. There is strength and clarity in the figures direct gaze. I want the viewer to feel the pulse of energy and spirit. I used base layers of magenta and cyan to create a buzz for your eyes and then added shimmering metal leaf. The viewer is intended to move around this painting so that the reflective light creates an almost auric interactive effect."
