ʻAnianiau with Orange ʻŌhiʻa

Anianiau With Orange Ohia by Wendy Roberts
ʻAnianiau with Orange ʻŌhiʻa, 10 x 10 inches, Oil on Wood Panel, Sold

One of Hawaii’s lovely gem-like birds, the tiny green ʻanianiau is a rare sight indeed. Here I have a male and female with orange ʻōhiʻa, a less common color of ohia that overlaps with the terrain of these beautiful tiny Hawaiian birds who live in the wet high elevation forests of Kauai. They are the smallest of the honeycreeper birds, in fact, both the birds and the ʻōhiʻa blossoms are painted larger than life size in this 10 inch square composition.

If you want to commission a painting, please contact me. I am always happy to help create the perfect piece for display, full of meaning to you, made with archival materials to last the test of time.
