On the 75th Anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attack, the survivors of the attack were presented a prestigious ceremony in their honor.  Part of this ceremony was a distinguished hula dance and song performed for them on Ford Island in front of the Arizona Memorial.  The performance was conducted by the Recca Family.  Joe Recca wrote and sang the song of gratitude and his daughter, Delys Recca performed the hula dance. 

Mark Howard was commissioned to capture this once-in-a-lifetime event in a painting.  Mr. Howard set out to capture three things: 1. the spirit of Hawaiiana and Hula, 2. the gratitude expressed to the survivors, and 3. the grace and beauty of the Ms. Delys Recca.  After the original painting was completed Mr. Howard felt compelled to paint this larger 40” x 30” presentation.

Delys Recca, the dancer portrayed is world renowned for her life time of island dance skills and honorable presentations.  She is a multiple year performer in the annual hula competition, the Merry Monarch Festival.  Ms. Recca is also a direct-line descendant of King Kamehameha.
