Louisiana's Brown Pelican & Magnolia

Hawaiian Goose & Hibiscus Flower

Arizona's Cactus Wren and Saguaro 

I really enjoy naturalist artwork of state bird and plant paired together. Mara Murphy and Anna Branning do a lovely job with strong graphics and colors through their prints at dutchdoor. It inspires me to draw and paint!

The print for Hawaii makes me miss my childhood. Hibiscus flowers are like old friends of mine, who I only rarely see in the Bay. Perhaps I should plant some for myself?
