Love this composition with the giant flower and a cute little bird. I have lots of painting ideas in the works, but this look is has to be one of my favorites. When I paint a single bird with a beautiful flower, I see the bird as a welcoming friend and the flower as his gift to you upon your arrival. Our (my bird's and my) way of presenting you with a lei when you visit.
For visitors to the islands: have a wonderful vacation in Hawaii!
For those who visit my art online: wish you were here!
And for all of us who live in Hawaii: Chee-hoo!
