The Idea of Hawaii

The following lines in calligraphic script by A.R. Gurrey Jr. are included as a photo-transfer to the leaf:


And far along the mountain crests
Like lace against the sky;
The koa trees stand and wave their hands
Where white clouds hurry by.

A.H. Parke.

Born in Honolulu, amateur artist Annie Hamlin Parke  (1858-1950) was one of the four original founding members along with professional artists (Mr.) D. Howard Hitchcock, Allan Hutchinson and amateur artist (Mrs.) W. M. Graham, of the Kolohana Art League in 1894, the first art society in Hawaii. (1.)
