"The Menehunes Come Out At Night", 24" x 30", acrylic on Canvas. This appeared in Tiki Magazine on their Tiki-Art featured "Page-7"... The painting's inspiration is from a story told to me by a Hawaiian friend who swore while camping on the beach one night, he had gone on a full moon walk into the jungle to "make water", as he came back, he saw, from a distance, "small dark figures" dancing around his fire he'd made on the beach. When he got to his camp site, the small figures were gone. Also, a Honolulu Police office swore to me that on several nights, he had seen "small dark figures" running/climbing up and down the tall palm trees in a court yard of a famous Historic Hotel in Waikiki. He would not tell me which hotel, but said the locals who work there never go to that court yard at night. Both these stories fit the stories of "Menehunes"; the "little people" of Hawaii. They only come out at night. It was not properly photographed, and as of now is NOT a giclee art print.
