The stars of this painting are the protea and the hummingbird. One of my favorite ways to show a hummingbird is when they are resting. I have a habit of looking high up into the oak trees around Ojai, and I almost always see a hummingbird or two up there.
This painting also has a little stone I found while beachcombing one day, dahlias and a bachelor button.
At the top corners there are nasturtium leaves on the left side and wild cucumber leaves and blossom on the right side.
