A Painting a Day #87 - Pink Orchid
Pink Orchid – 4"X4" acrylics on masonite.
Today's painting is of an orchid. I saw many at a family wedding I attended on Saturday. They were delicately suspended with invisible thread from willow branches. Each stem was stuffed inside a test tube shaped vase. So lovely! I started this painting with a blue background and worked with smaller brushes than I usually do. Love the contrast between the dark willow branches and the delicate flower.
I started painting one 4"X4" miniature daily on May 1st 2015. After a near fatal drowning experience in 2013, I realized just how precious life is and I wondered why I was waiting to do what I loved most. I just wasn't finding the time.
It took a while to commit to it, but a year later, I decided I just had to make the time and I enrolled in some fine art acrylic painting classes. Under my teacher, Sharon Moore-Foster, I gained confidence and found my soul's voice through my paintings.
Now I am fully committed to expressing myself through my fine art by creating one miniature painting to mark each passing day – to leave my mark in this world.
