I am fortunate to have a nice group of potted Cymbidium in the garden to offer up their beautiful blooms for a nice portrait.
The photo and the painting are different plants. You can tell by the difference in the
labellum or lip.
This is a watercolor of one of my favorites. I have had this particular plant for I'd say... 12 years? I have re-potted and divided it several times over that period.
The blooms last for a very long time if the darn bugs and slugs don't get to them. They last almost as long as cuttings in a vase indoors. Beautiful, Beautiful.

The source material for this drawing is my- COLMANARA, Wildcat 'Lorene' AM/AOS. Which I got as a rescue/charity case orchid sometime ago. I am very proud to say the patient has come back to us and has experienced a full recovery.
