Hawaiian IIwi Bird And Ohia Lehua Flower
Painting - Oil
I love the texture of the fuzzy Ohia Lehua blossoms. They are such a contrast to the firm round leaves. Throw in a matching Iiwi (Pronounced: ee-EE-vee) bird and what a pretty sight it makes! :)
When fiery volcanic forces leave the Hawaiian landscape gray and barren it is the Ohia Lehua tree that is first to return. To see this plant not only survive but prosper in this largely inhospitable environment inspires hope. Here an Iiwi bird poses brilliantly as it balances on a flowering Ohia branch.
