Acrylic or watercolor painting on black velvet, depicting white ginger flowers and green foliage. Signed "Hale Pua, Hawaii." Hale Pua was either an alternate name, or the name of the studio, of artist Frank Yasutara Oda. Originally made for the tourist trade, a label on the back of the frame describes the painting as "a guaranteed hand-made product of Hawaii nei," originally sold in the Hawaii Glass & Art shop, Honolulu, Hawaii. Probably made circa 1950.
