Virtual EXHIBIT: Birdy x 10 (Now 14!)
Thanks for coming to my Virtual Gallery Exhibition – I hope you enjoy your visit!
It all started 4 years ago when a friend brought me this poor little pathetic single shriveled leaf in a tiny pot, knowing I have some kind of strange plant magic where I can bring back just about any plant from dehydration, starvation and near death. She said, “Here, make it grow, can’t you?” Well, OK.
I fed it and nurtured it and told it that it was beautiful, and soon it became a budding genius, producing 9 or 10 little leaf nodules (I call them nubbies) at a time in a ring around the inner center of the plant, about twice a year. (Image: Birdy One – • sold)
Each time it makes new nubbies, the leaves it makes get longer and longer – each of the latest ring of leaves is about 6′ long. I sit next to it in the garden, and we hold hands/fronds and gaze at each other and we whisper sweet loving nothings into each others’ ears/stems.
Now it’s taller than I am, and has a wingspan of about 14′ – I have to put supports under the leaves to keep the lawn mower from cutting the ends of the leaves off!
I’m continually amazed by the number of different views possible of this one plant. After doing the 11th painting (!) inspired by its powerful leaves’ sinuous twists and turns, I decided I ought to have a show of all of the works. Here they are below – I hope you enjoy them all.

When your payment goes through, you’ll get an email from me, and we’ll go from there to arrange shipping. If you live on Oahu, you can just come pick up your painting, but if you live elsewhere, I’ll have to pack it up and ship it to you. S&H vary according to the destination.
If you live outside the US, you can bet shipping for any of the larger ones (over 12″ on a side) is going to be at least another $100 to $200, so be prepared.
