Thanks to Karen and Gary! This painting started as their idea for a commission and we went from there. Lately I have been going super bold in the colors and I must say, I am really liking the brilliant colors! K&G also chose a few more to display as a grouping, and they will look happy and lively together:)
As for our Flying Anna, these little hummingbirds love to flit around Bird of Paradise flowers and taste the sweet nectar from their blue petals. Karen told me how she enjoys watching the Anna's speed sip from one flower to the next. They move so quickly, they are just a big blur. I had to make sure this Anna's was nice a plump with his cute little feet and bright pink crown.
Sometimes creating someone else's idea can be challenging, but this painting was so much fun and everything fell perfectly into place! Mahalo K&G!
Also a big THANKS! to Linda and Michayla for choosing to take home "Ke Aloha 'I'iwi 2" last night. I am always happy to meet a budding art collector. I feel very priviledged that my painting is Michayla's very first piece of artwork. Enjoy your new painting and come back to visit my birdies and me soon! Mahalo!
