Kaleidoscope Orchid

5 x 5"
oil on Ampersand Gessobord

This orchid has been in bloom for a couple of months now, and I'm glad I finally worked up the courage to paint it, since the blossoms are now starting to drop. I highly recommend orchids to anyone who likes having plants in their home. With minimal care, they will rebloom every year, and the blossoms can last over three months.

Very nice! So much detail in such a small format, not an easy thing to accomplish!

Omg you're becoming another Duane Keiser... so detailed! The painting and the flower are both beautiful.
