When I was a floral designer it was always a treat to work with a Bird of Paradise. Sometimes they would need to be “opened” and you slid your fingernail along the edge and pulled out the colorful insides to make a fan of them. I just loved doing that! This canvas is 20 x 24 and the background has iridescent gold foliage.

What a great site, Barbara!! Beautiful paintings– glad to hear how enjoyable and rewarding this has been for you! — Carrie
Thank you, Carrie.
I’ve seen and admired several of your works in person. I have to say the photos here don’t do them full justice. Great work!
Yes, I agree that cell phone photos are really not the best, but it is all my abiding weariness will allow. I thank you for your kind words … always an encouragement!
