Paintings of O'ahu

This posting is especially for the noted Honolulu interior designer Fran Obayashi. She used a big painting of mine at Queen's Medical Center, showing a bunch of pink flowering shower trees at Kapi'olani Park. Now we are looking for something similar but different. That loop of shower trees with the glimpses of Le'ahi during the flowering season is pretty hard to beat, but O'ahu as a whole is a painter's paradise with one spectacular vista after another. Of course one has to maneuver around and between all the buildings and highway interchanges! I'm biased in a way because I grew up on O'ahu and still think it is the most beautiful of the Hawaiian islands.
