Paschón and the Art of Dying
This novel is based on some true facts. In the early 1970s an art showing took place in a private residence on the windward side of Oahu, across the Pali Mountain from Honolulu. It featured nine paintings under the name Paschón. The attendees were an eclectic mixture of “howlies,” native Hawaiians, and couples (many of the men fighter pilots) from the nearby Kaneohe Marine Corps Air Station.
The beautiful evening generated lots of excitement about the unique paintings. Subsequently, however, the art disappeared. One painting surfaced in 1992. The others have not been located.
Paschón.org offers the one painting and a couple of theories surrounding this mystery.
