Old Pahoa Town

Oil on canvas, 24 x 40. Another photo-realist piece from the 80s. The town of Pahoa on the Big Island, complete with oil stains and cigarette butts on the asphalt. In those days it was a sleepy little ramshackle town where the Filipino men sold anthuriums and ripe papayas on the sidewalk. Orlando collection
