El Flamboyan en mi Camino, by Melissa A. Torres, 16x20 oil on canvas

I love the Flamboyan of Puerto Rico. Known also as the Royal Poinciana plant, this brightly colored plant is found in many tropical places throughout the world.
This painting was mostly created using a palette knife and thick paint. The texture is wonderful. I usually paint in acrylics, but I love the thickness and color of oils.
