"This triptych illustrates a group of paddlers stumbling upon something magical. The ocean is alive! Inspired by the Hawaiian history of voyaging, exploration, and the relationship between man and sea. I wanted to create a serendipitous encounter between the paddlers and the ocean (represented with fish-like images). The relationship between the ocean and the Hawaiian culture is very special and complex."
~ Mae Waite
A vibrant portrayal of Hawaiian paddlers battling with large ocean waves by Mae Waite. Fine art prints mounted on birch wood panels and finished with art resin coating.
Each print features hand-applied art resin on top-quality Birch wood panels resulting in luxurious vibrant colors and detail. Birch is a lighter colored wood that has a very fine wood grain. Each wood panel is cradled with a solid wood frame to ensure that it will not flex, stretch or warp.
Prints available as individual wood panels, or a complete triptych set of 3 panels.
