MAHALO

A big ALOHA goes out to the wonderful person who purchased TWO

of my Na Pali Coast, Kauai calendars.

Just a little late perhaps, but….

With that famous REDBUBBLE quality

It is possible to frame each month’s image separately.

And that is never too late.

Thanks again.

Thank You

A big mahalo (thanks in Hawaiian) to the person who purchased a matted print of my “Makapuu Moon”………a personal favorite.
A few framed prints of the original photograph have sold at local galleries over the years, but is now out of print. This is the first sale of the digital version.
Thanks again,
Kevin
