We have finally hung a picture on the wall here in our house. The fact that this is a blog-worthy event eighteen months after moving in is, I admit, rather pathetic. But it is also very exciting. I finally feel like we are really moving in. Slowly but surely we're picking away at the projects that need to be done, and (for now) avoiding the temptation to take on any new ones.
This picture is called Hoe Kama Kani, which means "paddle with the wind." We found this picture at a home show in Honolulu while we were students, and I just fell in love with it. I stood there and stared at the picture for quite some time, but I simply couldn't justify the $140 price.
The salesman told us that they had a smaller print available for much less, but they had sold out at the show. We could look at it if we came by the studio the next week.
Unfortunately, the little 8x10 just didn't have the same effect as the full size print. So as you can see, we bit the bullet, got the big one, and have never felt even the tiniest bit of buyer's remorse.
Welcome home, canoe-paddling Polynesian guys. Welcome home.
