Bird of Paradise

Bird of Paradise in progress
I have some good friends that I have met in a painting class, and for years now we have been getting together to paint at someone's house in our group. We each work on our own projects and give support, constructive criticism, etc. to each other. We like to call it therapy.

This is a watercolor piece that I am currently working on. The focal point will be a bird of paradise.  I will probably do a series of similar pieces like this, one mixed media and one a fiber art piece.


  1. The leaves and the background are imperfectly perfect. I love the tears and brown spots. You really have a gift Eileen.

  2. I love the vibrancy of this painting and I am sure one done in fiber will be great as well. Beautiful representation!

  3. Do you have a picture of this piece as it is completed? It's magnificent!
