Hello all

Here are a couple of paintings just finished. 24x24 gallery canvas. Please excuse the glare, the background is all black even though it doesn't look like it in the photo.

Both very striking and beautifully painted, colors are glorious. Do love Bird of Paradise flowers.
You should share with Florals and Botanicals they would love these as well.

Wonderful work! The Bird of Paradise is my favorite tropical flower. When we lived in AZ, I had two of them potted in our (semi shaded) courtyard - they were my pride and joy!

Thanks everyone for the wonderful comments. On to the next painting. One good thing about being laid off from work if i get to paint daily!!
