War Paint, orchid, still life by Fawn
5 x 7 inches
(ready to frame)
Acrylic on hardboard
My husband grows orchids. He used to have 15 or so healthy plants, but after hurricanes and moving to a new place, he has about three left. This war paint is in full bloom right now. I was so taken by it's varying shades of purples and reds (contrasting with all that those lovely greens) that I just had to paint it. hopefully I will do a few more before it stops blooming. I love the graceful movement of these flowers.
