I spent part of today photographing and getting ready more of my paintings of orchids. Last summer my Aunt Terry took me to the National Headquarters of the American Orchid Society outside of Miami Fl. It was awesome. Although I did not paint on site, I took many, many photos and spent last autumn obsessed with painting them. Most I painted in my usual 'casual realism' style. They can be seen www.artistjackie.com/florals.html but I also played around with painting some brighter, more fun and more graphic than usual. These are the ones I will add to my web site soon, but here are a couple for you to enjoy.
