This piece features hand painted nature prints of the leaves and blossoms with extensive colored pencil drawings of the branches, the caterpillar, Egret and one of its long feathers. The Frangipanis are also finished with color pencil detailing.
An Egret flew over a Frangipani tree close by one morning and I was lucky to see it from our 3rd floor deck. Their bright colors and long feathers are spectacular during breeding season. The Frangipani Hornworm caterpillar which feeds on the tree is a good 6" long with spectacular markings.
