Office orchid

The District Manager at the State office I work in has an awesome green thumb and he often decorates our office with the orchids he grows. They are always SO beautiful! As I stepped out of the office on Friday, I took a picture of these gorgeous flowers with my handy camera, thinking if I had time, I would paint it and post it to bring in the New Year!

Happy New Year everyone! See you next year!

Nice loose execution -- and that pen outlining you do is always effective.

Absolutely beautiful painting Joan, you coped so well with the yellows they can be a tricky colour to work with!

joan-
i keep coming back to look at this painting. it's just gorgeous — warm and sunny and cheerful. And with about 9" of snow on the ground, it's about as close as I'll get to warm, sunny and cheerful for a long time.
LOL ;-)

This is beautiful Joan. I have to agree with the others, it is the warmth I needed on this blistering cold day.
Absolutely wonderful color!
