Honu Lulu

This young Green Sea Turtle hovers in the protected waters of a shallow Hawaiian lagoon. In Hawaiian, Honu is the name of the green sea turtle and lulu means "sheltered". Honu Lulu can be translated as "sheltered turtle" (the name of Hawaiʻi's state capital, Honolulu, means "sheltered bay"). In the background are assorted reef fish including the Uhu or parrot fish, a school of Kala or unicorn fish, and the Kihikihi or Moorish Idol. The bright red pencil urchin and black urchins are scattered among the coral reef as is the maroon colored algea called Limu Kohu. The turtle in this painting was inspired by a photograph by Michael Nolan.



The mat is the decorative border on the outside of the actual printed picture. Matted prints are measured by outside mat dimensions available in 8"x10", 11"x14", and 16"x20" - fitting standard-sized frames.

*Note that the actual picture size will be smaller than the mat size and may vary in shape depending on the shape of the original painting.



Full-size prints extend to the full dimensions of 8”x10”, 11x14”, or 16”x20” (or equivalent square inches in the case of narrow artwork). There is no mat border, so the picture itself is larger than that of a matted print.



Giclée, pronounced zhee-klay, is a French word meaning “fine spray”. Giclée are the finest quality reproductions printed on canvas, then varnished with a durable protective coating. They can be stretched and framed like an original painting and need no glass covering. Mine are sent rolled and ready for framing.



You may inquire about gallery wrap giclée, which adds an extra 1-5/8" all around, with an image mirrored edge. Gallery wrap giclée cost 20% more than standard giclée and can be stretched at a frame shop near you, as a contemporary option to framing.



I will, however, deliver your order to a shipper or framer of your choice on O‘ahu and you can deal directly with them. Contact me for further information on international shipping and framing. Mahalo
