Most of us know of the Bird of Paradise flower. But not many are familiar with the airplane of the same name that made the first flight between North America and Hawaiʻi. With their navigation devices malfunctioned and guiding by the stars, the pilots overshot their destination on Oʻahu and were heading past the main Hawaiian Islands. In the lower horizon, they saw the steadily blinking flash of the Kīlauea Lighthouse. They recalculated their course and landed safely at Schofield field on Oʻahu, crediting the Lighthouse with saving their mission, and their lives.
The mat is the decorative border on the outside of the actual printed picture. Matted prints are measured by outside mat dimensions available in 8"x10", 11"x14", and 16"x20" - fitting standard-sized frames.
*Note that the actual picture size will be smaller than the mat size and may vary in shape depending on the shape of the original painting.
Full-size prints extend to the full dimensions of 8”x10”, 11x14”, or 16”x20” (or equivalent square inches in the case of narrow artwork). There is no mat border, so the picture itself is larger than a matted print.

They can be stretched and framed like an original painting and need no glass covering. Mine are sent rolled and ready for framing.
