Bird of Paradise

16 x 12"

It always amazes me how some paintings paint themselves!
I really was not so sure about this commission when I first got it but once I started painting I easily became lost in the shapes and the next thing I knew, there it was!!!

I hope every one had as wonderful a Turkey day as my family and I !!

This was commissioned by my Mom and Dad. We fell in love with this flower on our first date in Orlando. We then made it part of our bridal bouquet when we were married in Maui. The painting is incredibly realistic and bursts with color. It now resides as the centerpiece in the livingroom of our new home in Raleigh NC. Thanks for making this so special for us.
