Inspired from an afternoon of painting with my friend Tara – this Crane Flower emerged. My sister Amy says they are weeds, and she is right about that – once they take hold, they’re everywhere – but oh so beautiful.
When I ran my art school, I must have drawn hundreds of these with my students, so the “bird” comes easy to me. You can find this one for sale in my HobsonFineArt shop on Etsy.com. Everyone needs a Bird of Paradise gracing the wall – don’t you think?
