Len took several photos of this stunning member of the toucan family when we were in Belize in January.  Watch for more paintings of him ~ at the moment they’re still in my head.

Bon Echo

This stunningly beautiful cliff has a walking trail along the top, and a provincial park nearby where you can camp and enjoy this special area.  It’s quite large (3′ x 2′) and was a commission.

If you’ve travelled in the tropics you have certainly seen one or another version of these beautiful plants.  They are pollinated by hummingbirds, often specifically one hummingbird breed for specific kinds of heliconia.

Iguana

This little fellow didn’t want to cooperate to be painted, but I finally persuaded him to stand still and stay the same colour.

Lionfish are an invasive species that are destroying the reefs off Florida and the Caribbean.  They have voracious appetites and consume dozens of other fish in every feeding, thus drastically reducing fish populations and altering reef ecosystems.  They can lay up to 30,000 eggs every four days, and their venomous spines leave them with no known predators in Florida waters.  Divers spear as many as possible and they are apparently good to eat.  This is the only time I have ever known the title for a painting before I began it!

You can see some in the Toronto Aquarium.
