Bird of Paradise with Tapa Cloth

I just uploaded this watercolor painting to Fine Art America. This piece was a new adventure for me. During the school year I often became inspired by the projects that my students were doing. After assigning Art I to paint using pointillism, I just had to give it a try. My students painted with Q-tips but I wanted more control so I used my paint brushes.

I wanted to do a floral but include a masculine element to the painting. I used the designs from a tapa cloth my husband gave me when we first started dating. He found it in Hawaii and it hangs in our bedroom. I love the simplicity of the design and color. I took the designs and created a tapa cloth frame around the flower. I hope you enjoy it.
