Arizona Bird of Paradise – caesalpinia pulcherrima, 2018, Soft Pastel on Board, 10×8″, copyrighted with all rights reserved by Jean Krueger

The Arizona Bird of Paradise (caesalpinia pulcherrima) is a member of the Fabaceae (pea) family. Where we stay they are trimmed into medium height shrubs but they can grow to small tree proportions. They have every color from deep red to deep purple. Blossoms are in the red orange yellow range with leaves from green to deep violet. They are very delicate with a lacey fragility.

This is painted with a combination of soft pastel pencils and sticks. The surface is lightly fixed to discourage dusting.

$50. USD
