"Bird of Paradise"
This was drawn specifically for a good family friend. I wanted to brighten her day, and send her the well wishes from my family to hers. In looking at many different subjects, I finally came upon the Bird of Paradise. With its brilliant and flamboyant feathers, it made for a nice combination of my usual tribal style, mixed with a more floral, swirly style. Another friend suggested the flair of color in the tail, and it worked out beautifully.
