Red Joy, heliconia painting by Floravita

Fresco Watercolor Painting on Board, 8" X 8"
Unsold paintings can be purchased for $95 plus $6 s/h: from the artist

Red heliconia flowers are striking and exotic. It's funny because when I travel, I'm always looking for new flowers to paint even though I may have a lot of images of the same kind of flower. I just love the way the leaves position themselves in the compostition with the flower. And the way the sunlight comes through is just breath taking. When I'm painting a flower, I'm look to make the color rich. I'm also looking for flowers that are kissed by the sun.

Paintings can be purchased from Floravita.
