After a week of company, plus a workshop I've been very remiss with my blog. I hope I can post a picture of something I did in the workshop with Bridget Austin in the coming week but for today I'm posting an orchid that a painted awhile ago. I'm inspired by a post by Laura's Watercolors of an orchid. I love painting them; the graceful arch of the stem, the shiny green leaves and the many varieties makes me want to collect them all. Alas, I am not good at keeping them happy. You'd think that being in Florida it would be a "no-brainer" so I keep trying. This one was raised by an expert, a Vietnamese lady who collects many varieties that hang in her trees and are all happy bloomers.
