When I was making my art piece I was thinking about the ancient Hawaiians and how they did things as well as how life is now. So, the meaning of my artwork is that living in Hawai’i, is about preserving how the Native Hawaiians did things, and to pass on the tradition to make sure it doesn’t get lost in time. I wanted people to feel free when they looked at my painting and to think of some traditions that they have in their family. I wanted them to be inspired to keep meaningful traditions in their family alive and to make new ones on the way. For these reasons I used watercolor to give it a sort of free or loose look. I didn’t really use a specific technique, I just went with whatever felt right.
