Life at Best (2017)

The iridescent sheen of the Emerald Dove comes to life when passing through the intermittent light of a rainforest. This dove is never far from fruiting trees and is more often seen foraging on the ground for fallen ripe fruits. In the forest canopy the vivid green blends very well into the surrounding foliage. This Emerald Dove sat quietly on a branch close to the ground and as the wind stirred the canopy occasional beams of light highlighted her beautiful green wings. I was able to get great photographic reference for this painting.
