We are fortunate that mangoes thrive in our tropical Hawaiian climate. Locals and visitors alike enjoy the sweet exquisite taste of the mango. Mango season starts in spring with blossoms beginning to flower on trees and continues through summer with fruit production. As the fruit ripens the skin turns to bright red, orange, yellow, green, and purple. This is one of my favorite subjects to paint because of the vibrant colors and dark green leaves. It brings back childhood memories, when we picked the colorful Hayden and Pirie mangoes and shared them with family and friends.
