Cardinal and Hibiscus 5"x5" acrylic
This is the fourth painting in the tropical set of 5 paintings. Unfortunately, the camera did not capture the rich colors in the hibiscus flowers at all. There is more purple in them in the original painting.
My passion, which started early in life, is creating paintings of wild animals in their natural habitat. For me the best part of being a professional artist is spending time in the field studying and observing birds and animals. We live in such an amazing world, I just want to soak in as much as possible and share it with others through my paintings.
