Paintings Inspired by the Beautiful Flame Trees on Guam

I was recently inspired by the season of flame trees in full bloom here on Guam. Truly a sight to see, these vibrant red and orange flowers will demand your attention and invite your appreciation for such beauty. As I drove by a particularly amazing flame tree in Hagatna, I knew that it would be the subject of my painting that day. Here is the process of the piece I created, and then a picture of a 2nd one in a totally different style. I didn’t get in-progress photos of the 2nd piece, but I did include a video clip, and both pieces are now on the wall at Mosa’s Joint in Hagatna. The first piece is also available on website for prints and other  merchandise.
