Bird of Paradise Flower Painting Commission and Hanging Original Art in Your Bathroom

Oil Painting on Canvas, 12" X 12"
Contact the artist, Jenny Floravita

This blog entry brings me to the subject of "Is it suitable for original paintings to be hung in bathrooms"? And the answer is Yes, if the room is not too humid and has proper ventilation. I've sold countless works, usually oils but sometimes watercolors, that were destined to add beauty to bathrooms.

By adding an original oil painting to the wall of your bathroom, you are adding class and originality to your space.

This particular oil painting was a commissioned piece for a client, who also purchased another exotic flower painting. It is destined for a special place in second home in Mexico. I had to match the background and accent cobalt blue colors to a tile, that is being used in the room, seen below.

A bit about Birds of Paradise... they originate from South Africa and are pretty hardy in California and can be seen through out the tropics and sub-tropics. I grow them in my garden here in Northen California. The weather is nice and warm in the summer and though there can be a bit of cold in the winter, the plant survives.
