  5. Naked? I can't stand seeing myself naked. Frightful! By the by, darlin', I am in Illinois, even further! At any rate, these are indeed tropical beauties! Is the top one a bird of paradise? Love those purple leaves too; I see them at times on plants and I am always enamored! Both paintings are just exquisite!
