"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.
