Imagine my surprise the first time I saw the Bird of Paradise flower. My foster family in Colombia, South America, gave me a bouquet of these while I was an exchange student. I loved their shape and vibrant colors. Now in Malaysia, I see them planted in hedge rows! They are very common, though they look so exotic.
At this time, most of us in Malaysia have to stay home most of the time and elsewhere the weather is mostly shades of grey. I have delighted in painting these gorgeous flowers to remind us there is still beautiful color around us and there’s plenty to cheer our hearts.
Why not look today for bright and beautiful things to focus on and share a spark of life with someone who feels down?
