Small Scale Magic

Amakihi (Earrings)

I painted this miniature portrait of an Amakihi upon thick watercolor paper with teensy brushes. It is presented in these earrings at it's true magical scale.

A member of the Hawaiian honey creeper family, this guys golden coat really makes him stand out.
Here, he's rocking more of a greenish color, product of a dream I had.... An Amakihi was hiding in our garden, there, but somehow evading my (incredibly sharp) eyes, blending into the mulberry and curry trees, camouflaged like an octopus, or.... Waldo. ;)

Dimensions and deets:


Archival giclees of my original painting.
Set in brass bezels around the size of dimes.
Covered in resin, and hung on brass wire that contains NO lead or nickel.
Packaged on our card which is made of recycled paper. :) 


Thanks for looking, I hope you find something you love!
