"Moani"-a gentle breeze brings inspiration

"Moani" 16"x20" acrylic on canvas by Colleen Wilcox Have you ever sat outside on a warm day and felt soft breezes on your skin blowing the fragrance of summer flowers in the air? The Hawaiian word "Moani" means a light or gentle breeze that is usually associated with fragrance. For me, living in Hawaii means I get to experience such delights all year round.

Every July for the past four years I have participated in the annual Haleiwa Arts Festival on the north shore of Oahu.
