Bird of Paradise
Watercolor 16 x 24
©Jean Bidwell – “Bird of Paradise”
This work takes me back to my family home and my introduction to many beautiful, unique plants, by way of my Mother’s passion for anything green. The Bird of Paradise appears in a number of my works; its leather-like, green and silver leaves protect each glossy, radiant, sword-like flower. This plant is proof-positive that strength and beauty are most assuredly NOT exclusive.
