The Orchid And The Dragon
Painting - Acrylic On Gallery Wrapped Canvas
Title: The Orchid and the Dragon
Size: 8" x 10"
I bought an Orchid at Lowes one year. When the blooms died, I sat the little pot near the window in my studio. It had just two leaves draped slightly over the pot. I watered it when it was dry and my little clay pot with two leaves kept me company. Slowly, there came two more leaves.....and then this little stalk started winding its way out of the little clay pot. I really don't know how long it took to bloom, but I was so proud when four blossoms came. The flowers lasted for quite some time sitting on the mantle in the living room. I took several reference photos, I was so proud of my little orchid. The blooms have long since died and the little orchid had to be transplanted into a larger clay pot. It is once again getting watered regularly at the window in my studio, waiting patiently for another bloom.
The teacup is from a Dragonware tea service that belonged to my grandmother.
The Orchid and the Dragon was completed in my home studio in Shelby, North Carolina, c2008.
Media: The Orchid and the Dragon was painted using professional artist grade acrylic paint on a gallery wrapped canvas with painted sides to allow for display without a frame. Painting was finished with a light coat of varnish.
