I've painted pineapples before, but I thought it would be fun to paint the pineapple still on the plant. And of course I had to add a couple birds to the mix! These two are Northern Cardinals. They are abundant here in Hawaii. The male has bright red plumage and the female is soft silver grey with peach and red tones. The male will court his lady every year, dating all over again each time. His song can be heard blocks away as he calls to her and asks her to make him a lucky bird all over again. Look how proudly he smiles here on this pineapple bush. Today, it's mission accomplished.
