The Paradise Garden

The Paradise Garden comes from the Bird of Paradise flower with exaggerated colours.  This painting has been created with the intent to be a colourful statement on someones wall at home, to perhaps place above a black lounge suite with bright throw cushions and a simple flower arrangement on the side. Well, what about in the lobby of a hotel or a posh office reception. The original is SOLD.  A print on canvas 1800 X 800  is $950.00

Return of the Rainbows

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Far North Queensland is known for its World Heritage Rainforest canopies that meet  with the  crystal clear waters of the Great Barrier Reef.        
The Rainbow Lorikeets fly in groups from tree to tree searching for the fruits of the Rainforest. Pictured here in this painting – foraging a palette of  the Umbrella Tree berries  which they can get quite intoxicated  from and at times can cause them to fall out of the tree in a drunken stupor.  
Way to go!!  Sorry , this painting is SOLD    

The Blue Garden

The Blue Garden is a diptych pair which features the Beehive Ginger flower with its ridges exaggerated with a modelling compound to give a 3D appearence.  Also the Lipstick palm with the red stalks, the Rostrata heliconia flowers hanging down and 3 red antherium flowers in the foregrounds center.  Bringing the Tropical outdoors into the home with a vibrant blue.  Check out the Beehive Ginger and the Croton painting.

The Beehives

The Beehive Ginger is a tropical clumping plant which I have  painted the foliage blue and exaggerated the flower ridges with a modelling compound which is applied with a small brush sculpturing each protrusion.  This method gives the flowers a realistic 3 dimensional appearance and when displayed with down lights each protrusion creates a shadow which is highly effective.  If you like this style of painting be sure to check out ‘The Blue Garden” diptych pair and ‘The Croton’.
