Hawaiian Honey
18x36 Acrylic on Canvas $1000 Hawaiian Honey tells of the time me and my wife traveled to Oahu. We were 6 months into the relationship. She needed a date for a wedding (that would get cancelled) so we went anyway. There was one problem the week before we left for Hawaii. We were flat broke! In no position to vacation, I picked her up a few nights before our flight and went to a local bar. Living in Vegas then, she asked what we were doing there. I told her I was there to win us money for Hawaii! Surprisingly, I hit a jackpot of $300 and $120 playing video poker. Needless to say, we had a wonderful time. Something that sticks out in my mind from this trip is when we took a stroll through a park by Ala Moana shopping center, she picked a Hibiscus and put it in her hair. She made reference to the different ears you put the flower on and their meaning.
