Merlin Flower is an OEN member and an artist whose paintings can also be found on Facebook.   Click here to view my six earlier OEN articles featuring Merlin's paintings.

Per email, Merlin told me that none of the following paintings was planned in the least, except for Bindi, whose colors were chosen at the suggestion of a friend.

Enjoy !
