"The Moon of Manakoora" is a romantic mix of a pop-culture movie, a vintage love song, a full-moon rave I used to attend on the Big Island, and TIKI culture.
• The 1937 film “The Hurricane” where Dorothy Lamour croons the love-song "The Moon of Manakoorah" to her star-crossed Polynesian lover… just before a massive tropical storm wipes the “Island of Manakoorah” off the face of the Pacific forever!
• The painting shows my own Big Island Full-Moon party experiences, my inebriated memories of full-moon raves on the beach, and local myths & legends.
• All covered with a twilight VOG (Volcanic Fog)
