13 HAWAIIAN CHRISTMAS PAINTINGS — DIANA HANSEN-YOUNG

Here is a collection of my Christmas paintings done in Hawaii from 1986 to 1993.

If you’d like, take a screenshot or download (I’m sure you can somehow) and print them out on good paper or cards or canvas and you can use them under Creative Commons License — for personal use only, no commercial use — thanks!

Hawaiian Christmas Prayer — I painted this during the Gulf War, 1990. I was asked to create a hopeful painting by a military mom whose husband — and her daughter’s daddy — were deployed to Iraq. The tiny photo on the sofa under her clasped hands is of her dad.

I lived in Hawaii from 1966 to 1997, but these paintings were done from 1986–2003.

Mele Kalikimaka, all!
