Fresh Paint Florals > Heliconia: Ala i ka lani
The flowers portrayed in here are Heliconia. Heliconia come in many shapes, sizes, and colors; some grow upwards, while others hang down. The true flowers are small and conical, growing inside the dramatic showy bracts.
Some heliconia grow with the bracts pointing up, others grow hanging down. No matter, their beauty is brilliant both ways. Sometimes our own growth takes place in fits and starts. What might look like a “wrong turn” turns out to be our biggest step forward.
Ala i ka Lani is Hawaiian for Pathway to Heaven. This heliconia painting was titled by consensus; I asked my readers to give it a title. Several mentioned heaven, reaching upwards, toward the sun, or growing to heaven. A few mentioned a spiraling energy, one similar to the double helix of our DNA. Perhaps it was best summed up as always seeking to improve, expand, and broaden our creativity.
