More on paintings of Joseph Nawahi, 1888.

A TALENTED PAINTER.

We went in person to see the just completed paintings of Joseph Nawahi, Esq. of Hilo; a painting of the crater of Kilauea and Waikiki seen from Leahi; we have but one word to say,—he is a Hawaiian well versed at painting self taught to a very high level. It is something that baffles the malihini, that Mr. Nawahi possesses this amazing talent like that of the haole who were actually schooled in this field of knowledge. His paintings are being shown at the bookstore of A. M. Hewett [Huita] where malihini have words of praise for this Hawaiian skilled at handling his paintbrush deftly utilizing all the colors of ink. Way-up.
