Triptych Birds of Paradise

Happy July 4th! I'm off to Colorado with my college friends for a girls reunion. I'm soooo looking forward to cool weather since we are scorching and dying from the drought!
I wanted to finish this triptych before I left so I could remember what colors I was using. My friend Maggie and I did a barter! She painted, tiled and updated my bathroom, and I did this painting for her. The panels will be framed in 12 by 24 black metal frames. The painting is done on a board textured with with pumise and acrylic paint, and then painted over with pastel. Fun technique!
I'm waiting her approval though! May need to touch up things here and there.
Have a wonderful weekend!
