Makapu`u to Mānana

Makapu`u to Mānana

From an Oil Painting Completed in 2022


This scene is from the shoreline of Makapu’u Bay looking toward Mānana, also known as “Rabbit Island”. It got this nickname because during Hawaii’s sugar plantation era, the rabbits in Waimanalo were sent to Mānana so they would not damage the suger cane crops. To the right of Mānana is a smaller dark islet called Kāohikaipu. This islet gets its name from a cove on the back side of it the resembles an ipu (container).


Makapu‘u, on the east side of O‘ahu, is a favorite place for body surfers and surfers including artist Patrick Ching.



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 that of a matted print.



Giclée, pronounced zhee-klay, is a French word meaning “fine spray”. Giclée are the finest quality reproductions printed on canvas, then varnished with a durable protective coating. They can be stretched and framed like an original painting and need no glass covering. Mine are sent rolled and ready for framing.



You may inquire about gallery wrap giclée, which adds an extra 1-5/8" all around, with an image mirrored edge. Gallery wrap giclée cost 20% more than standard giclée and can be stretched at a frame shop near you, as a contemporary option to framing.



I will, however, deliver your order to a shipper or framer of your choice on O‘ahu and you can deal directly with them. Contact me for further information on international shipping and framing. Mahalo



Shipping for original art is to be paid by the buyer and will be determined on a case-by-case basis.
