Today is my last day of recovery and I feel great! Got the approval from my doc to do all normal activities:)
I am loving my plump little 'Amakihi with Lehua blossoms. The 'Amakihi is more prevalent than most Hawaiian honeycreepers, listed as "Least Concern" on the Species Conservation List. They are adaptive birds who feast on a wider variety of plants and insects. 'Amakihi live on the Big Island, Maui, Lana'i and Moloka'i.
For some reason, my camera captured a dark blue color for the background, in person the canvas is more blue-grey-purple.
We just got through the stormy days of Flossie, so I guess I subconsciously painted darker skies full of rain that the Big Island desperately needed!
