The sweet folks over at Picket Fence Studios sent me a little care package – and when I saw this Bird of Paradise I knew I had to color it up! I found a pic on google with a bokeh background, and that was my inspiration.

I wasn’t sure this was going to turn out as well as it did but man – I was so thrilled! A few weeks ago I shared a video talking about being “in the zone” – and this card was surely one of those moments.

I liked this so much I nearly didn’t even put it on a card! Watch for me to paint some bird of paradise flowers in World Watercolor Month on my fine art instagram account….that might happen!
