90 in 90 on Molokai, Day 37, Lauhala Hat
Walking back from town wondering what to paint I ran into my friend Kulia wearing a hat woven from the lau (leaves) of the hala (pandanas) tree. The feather band is also an art form requiring special skill. Kulia used to own an art gallery so she didn't think it strange when I caught up to her in a parking lot and I asked if I could paint her hat.
