Another painting of another book. More Orchids to come.

Here we have another of the smaller paintings featuring the bloom. This one of Vanda Sandra Johnson 'Crownfox'. I love the names. They are always an interesting combination of the growers and "parent" plants of the specimens.

As you might now I create many different kinds of art imagery. So I thought I might include something new Ive been working on besides the Orchids and other botanicals.

I started a series of paintings of books. I really enjoy the challenge of duplicating the book and the imagery in the book as exact to actual scale as possible. An interesting aspect of this piece was the Chinese characters on the left side of the painting.
