I have the best place in our house for orchids - our bathroom! They get extra humidity from baths and showers, plus, there is a big window with filtered southern light. The orchids seem to love it there. I currently have twenty two blossoms fully opened, with one pick one half opened. (22 and a half?) The photos I am posting today are from a couple of weeks ago, so I probably need to take some more photos. But at least I can give you a little sample!
Here is a photo from a painting I did alla prima, which I can't seem to layer over. I just love it, even though it isn't anything like my other new paintings.
