Iris Lewis – Flamboyant Tree

Posted by: frank in News Add comments

The Flamboyant trees are in bloom right now on Anguilla – a shame that they don’t flower when the Island is hopping, but those of us here through the summer are always dazzled by their display of flowers.  These great trees (Delonix Regia) grow throughout the tropical world, and are known by a variety of names throughout Asia,  Australia, South American and the Caribbean. 

 

Iris Lewis brought in a vintage work of hers, about 15 years old, done of a Flamboyant.  While I was driving up from her home today I encountered a tree in full flower.  Both the real tree and the work of art are superb!flamboyant treeLewis - Flamboyant

    Roland Richardson made these trees known to us northerners, great to see other artists giving them their due attention. Counting the days until February!

    Frank, that is a beautiful picutre and Iris is one of my favorite artists. I have been fortunate to have seen many priceless paintings in Steve Wynn’s collection. Your artists always move me too.
    Be well and safe, I hope Earl passes by quickly and with no destruction of lives or property.
    My very best wishes to you.
    Ellen
