Manana Island (I)

Manana Island (I)

Manana island is located on the eastern windward shore of the island of Oahu, and is designated as a seabird sanctuary. Also referred to as Rabbit Island because of it’s shape and the fact that rabbits used to be raised on it, it is one of the most striking views from Makapu’u Beach. From this vantage I have always imagined ancient warriors paddling across in outriggers to demonstrate their strength & courage. The curling wave is where we’ve snorkeled down to ride the underwater surge into the rocky shoreline voids, and then ride the surge back out. (Dangerous. Do not attempt without a professional!)

The artist captures the view and sets the stage for imagining the warrior’s outrigger journey.

Artist Jeff Conway’s vision is brought to life using a photographic base with digital watercolor and oil effects printed on metallic finish or canvas media applying a hand brushed acrylic topcoat for a textured translucence individualizing each piece.
