2019 Laguna Beach Plein Air Painting Invitational - Fronds of Paradise Painting

Sometimes, what you expect to paint isn’t what you end up painting. 

I was looking for the perfect bird of paradise flower to paint for #LPAPA21st, but found that many in the area were already just a bit past their prime. Then I realized that sometimes the plant is just as beautiful as the bloom, especially this one, which provides shade and privacy in the cozy backyard of our hosts.

“Fronds of Paradise” • Oil on linen • 16”x20” • Private Collection

This painting will be available for sale this Saturday at the 2019 Laguna Plein Air Collectors Gala at the Festival of Arts/Pageant of the Masters. - Patrick Saunders
