    I love these. They resemble a girl I was in love with, as well. Are these done in colored pencil? Or soft pastel? Or are they just very soft oil paintings? I cannot tell. If i had to guess, Id say colored pencil?

Under the guidance of another artist John Hina aka Prime, Hadar’s work continues to explore a modern-day form of mo’olelo or ancient Hawaiian storytelling.
