Inner Beauty, Orchid #4

"Inner Beauty"
(War Paint Orchid #4)
6 x 6 inches
Acrylic on canvas

I started very abstract and then got more impressionistic and painterly with lots of nice brush work. But as I was drawn into the center of the flower I began to refine the painting more. It became a tedious and all absorbing thing, I guess I got lost in it for a while. That is a great experience, kind of like a day dream that you don't want to come to an end.

The painting continues on the sides of the canvas, and the staples are on the back. I like that because it makes framing optional.
