Caesalpinia pulcherrima – Mexican Bird of Paradise

Caesalpinia pulcherrima – Mexican Bird of Paradise, watercolor and gouache, 11×15″, 2019, copyrighted with all rights reserved by Jean Krueger

It’s October in Arizona and the Mexican Bird of Paradise is in one of its full blooms. The shrub flowers several time during a single year and is always showy and dramatic with its red/orange blossoms and its complimentary blue/turquoise foliage. The frilly detail of this plant is captivating to the eye. it’s always visually in motion, compositionally dynamic… just another reason to love the American southwest.
