Birds of Paradise Bouquet on Blue After Matisse

These flowers, which South Africans call strelitzias, featured throughout my childhood, including as the badge on my school uniform for three of the many schools I attended growing up. Another familiar motif in my work--wildcats-- featured on another which may explain my dueling obsessions. This piece features a vase of these flowers all looking in different directions, their vibrant orange crowns competing for supremacy. The purple-blue in the background is one of my favorite colors to paint in and you will see it pop up an awful lot in my work.
