This is a print on paper of an original painting. The original painting is no longer available, but this print on canvas is a perfect reproduction.
Pat Field studied at the University of Colorado, the University of Hawaii and Chaminade University in Honolulu. She always loved to draw and paint. It was an invitation to exhibit her work in a gallery and the positive response from friends and art lovers that encouraged her to devote herself full time to painting.
Pat has a passion for capturing, in her figurative work, what she describes as, “the wonderfully open postures and expressions of the people of Hawaii”, as well as the similar endearing qualities of the oversize flora found around the islands. The tilt of a head or the lyrical shape of a leaf, with their graceful lines and individual personalities, inspire her to put brush to canvas.
Her work can be found in numerous private and corporate collections around the islands.
Ti plants are thought of as protective in local culture.

It produces 40–60-centimetre (16–24 in) long panicles of small scented yellowish to red flowers that mature into red berries.
It is native to tropical southeastern Asia, Papua New Guinea, Melanesia, northeastern Australia, the Indian Ocean, and parts of Polynesia. It is not native to either Hawaii or New Zealand but was introduced to both by Polynesian settlers
