Purple Orchid Line Dance

I wanted an orchid to paint as a project last spring. One of the supermarkets close to me had potted orchids for sale in their floral department. One day, I walked in and noticed that they had dropped the price. So, I bought one!

About a week later, I started this painting. Orchids have many beautiful varying shapes. The shape of this one seems to be the most common, but I loved the purple color.

I still have the orchid, and maybe next year when she blooms again, she will sit for another portrait! This painting is a 16×20 oil on canvas. Enjoy!
