Ron was a teenage runaway from the West Coast, a sweet young guy who survived a violent, traumatic experience on the mainland, ran off to Kauai and was adopted by a group of Taylor Camp women. His time in camp was a refuge, a healing, an opportunity to access his adventurous heart with friends who treated him as a beloved younger brother.

A playful, tender soul with a Peter Pan “never grow up” spirit and a teenager’s appetite, Ron got the name “Radar” because he always “homed in” and appeared when food was served.  He got his wish to “never grow up” and died a very young man.

The Hawaiian name for Buddha Mountain is Makana — the gift.

Prints are on Hahnemuhle heavyweight (315 gsm) 100% archival cotton “Photo Rag Baryta” paper, using archival inks and archival spray coating. They have a 200-year life expectancy before any deterioration of the print will be observed when stored, handled, and displayed under archival conditions.

What is often called “Gallery Wrap Canvas” is a fine art inkjet (Giclee) print on canvas, with printed edges to wrap around a wooden stretcher frame, like a painting. With canvas prints, your print image is still the same size, but given a "wrap effect" around the edges to account for the thickness of the stretcher. Canvas can be rolled and shipped with no effect to the print. Your local framing shop should be able to mount the canvas to stretchers at a fraction of the cost of traditional framing, making for an overall more economical way to get fine art on your wall. The canvas is printed to wrap around a 1-inch stretcher (1.5 inches on larger sizes). Specifications will be provided with your order. Feel free to contact us if you need guidance with your canvas order.
