Color A Day # 12 - Bird of Paradise

A friend and I were chatting today, and as we passed by a Bird of Paradise bush she remarked, "Oh, there's my favorite flower!".   I can see why it's her favorite.  It's such a showy looking blossom - with a shock of fiery, in-your-face orange plumage on it's crown.  I admire these flowers - with all their vibrant, pointed color - and featured a BOP prominently in one of my Frida Icon paintings. 

BOP, the bird.

BOP, The flower.
