PALILA PEEKABOO, by Caren Loebel-Fried, is an 11x14", limited edition fine art print from an original hand-pulled, hand-colored block print. The materials used in this museum quality print are all of the highest quality, printed on acid-free, 100% cotton paper, with archival, pigment-based inks. Each piece is signed and numbered by the artist, backed by a white acid-free board, and packaged in a clear re-sealable art bag with a description and a certificate of authenticity on the back.

The Palila, Loxiodes bailleui, is an endangered Hawaiian Honeycreeper found on the Island of Hawai‘i. It eats seeds from the green pods growing on the Māmane trees, as well as the blossoms, buds and leaves, and the seed of the Naio trees. The Palila can be found on the southern slopes of Mauna Kea between 6500’ and 9300’, following the budding, blooming, and fruiting of the Māmane trees. Due to loss of Māmane trees resulting from grazing sheep and goats, the Palila population and habitat is very small, and they are extremely vulnerable to extinction. Caren observed the birds up close that were being raised in a conservation breeding program at Keauhou Bird Conservation Center. This piece features two males and one female Palila busy with Māmane seed pods, but peeking curiously at us while we watch them.

Caren learned the ancient art of block printing from her mother. She volunteers and researches on Midway Atoll, Kīlauea Point, and other wild places around the Hawaiian Islands. Caren creates art for many organizations, supporting the work they do on behalf of wildlife, conservation, and the perpetuation of Hawaiian Culture.

Caren’s award winning illustrated books include Manu, the Boy Who Loved Birds, A Perfect Day for an Albatross, Naupaka, Lono and the Magical Land Beneath the Sea, Hawaiian Legends of Dreams, Hawaiian Legends of the Guardian Spirits, Pua Polu, the Pretty Blue Hawaiian Flower, Tree of Souls, and Legend of the Gourd.

Ordered four prints including Midway and Alala Love - I have both of them as jigsaw puzzles and had to get the prints :-) Quick shipping and very well packaged up - Caren included a free extra as thanks which was totally unexpected. Beautiful artwork - now I have to visit another favorite Etsy store to get frames made!

Caren Loebel-Fried's "Kilauea Point" is a gorgeous print, exceedingly crafted and well-packaged for delivery. Caren's artwork is radiant. I've put "Kilauea Point" on the wall alongside my earlier purchase of the equally beautiful "Midway." And I'm already imagining a third print by Caren! And a fourth!
