Joyous Celebration (African Tulip Tree)

"Joyous Celebration"
20" x 24" Acrylic on gallery wrap canvas

The beautiful and intense color of the African Tulip Tree blossoms is truly a joy to behold.   They were introduced to Hawaii as ornamental landscape trees, but some have found their way into "the wild" and are a threat to native species.   Below is the reference photo for the above painting.

I decided to not put the praying mantis shown in this photo in the painting.   That particular insect is very creepy to me !
