This is a Florida tree called a Royal Poinciana. As you can see it is loaded with blossoms to capture the essence of nature with great precision. In order to create its fullness, I make single blossoms using three stained shells then glue four of them to a mustard seed and then glue them to the branches. It is the time and attention to detail that allows me to capture the magic and beauty that Florida has to offer. Yes it has taken a long time to get this far and I intend once the tree is completed to create an all white settee under the shade of the tree using sea urchin parts. However, time will only tell how well I am able to replicate the magnificent beauty that Florida has to offer.
