White Orchids and Blue Willow

I have several orchid plants and it is so exciting when those gorgeous blooms burst forth from their little green pods.  The white phalaenopsis orchids are a challenge to paint.  They are delicately luminous and white,  yet they reflect colors and have subtle shadows.  The Blue Willow cup is from my mother's collection.  It is extremely thin porcelain and very old.  This painting is framed in a fabulous wide silver floater frame and available at The Shops of DCI.  If you have not been by The Shops of DCI, you are missing one of Memphis' finest shops where you will find gorgeous furniture, art, and wonderful gifts for the home and a collection of personal gifts.  Gifted designer, Terri Panitz and staff are ready to assist you with all your home design needs.
