Lady Slipper Orchid - Angel's Flight

Hot off the press.......I fell in love with this delicate beauty, and just had to get her on canvas.
Love the long tendrils, the exotic stripes and spots, and those colors, well that did it for me!!!
Hope you enjoy her too!!!  Look deep, deep,  into her eyes..............!!!!

Wow!! I really love your work! I started a blog with the purpose of promoting art. The initial motive was to do my own art search but along the way, I met so many magnificent artist who needed to be seen, I found myself creating more and more ways to promote them. It seems to be going fairly well. Would you like to add your blog to the blog promotion directory?? check it out! http://rareartarenalinkexchange.blogspot.com/

Gorgeous! Love the drama and the intensity of the colors and of course, the gracefulness of the petals. It looks like a beautiful bird in flight. For a while, I was thinking you used oil pastel on velvet or felt. The texture of the background shows a similar effect.

Thank you whitewitch for your lovely comments. The background was an experiment I did, using cheesecloth and a black paint mixture, over a first layer of colors.
