"Yellow Tipped Haliconia"
On my trip to the Big Island I discovered these wild Haliconia flowers. They came in a number of different colors and shapes. This was the first one I painted, the simplest and most orderly. I subsequently painted a big hanging Halyconia in it's natural surroundings, hanging with several others in the rain forest and a yellow Halyconia. I like the blue accents and I think I did a pretty good job with the 3D effect of the pods that seem to be something hard if you touch them. They're part of the Bird of Paradise family, which has always fascinated me and been one of my favorite flower families.
