DescriptionWith love as vibrant and rich as the lavender and golden sunset in this painting, a young woman, following the traditional Hawaiian custom, places a lei around the shoulders of her lover. With this gesture, she whispers her love and her desire to spend her life with him. In the traditional Hawaiian wedding, flower lei s are not only shared by the lovers, but also given to both the bride and groom by their families, in celebration of the combining of the two greater families. In this painting, perhaps the couple have no extended family, but feel so close as to be a 'village unto themselves', with the glorious sky and sea their only witness to their commitment.
