Cymbidium Repose

While Miss Cymbidium claimed to be an upstanding kind of gal; quite unaccustomed to lolling, I caught her in a moment of luxurious repose -- about to nibble a bon bon.  

This is the last in my short series of orchid paintings.  I may revisit this subject again, but only after taking more photos.  Enough with the cymbidium, already! Sheesh.

Thank you for checking in today.

Cymbidium Kiss

"Cymbidium Kiss"
10" x 8"
Oil on canvas panel

She had the sweetest mouth... if you like fuzzy tonsils, spotted lips and a dappled throat.  Her arms spread wide... all five of them, to welcome me into her embrace...  thankfully she wasn't wearing perfume! 

The cymbidium orchid wears no scent.  She just looks like she could—would—should.

This is my first in a quick series of orchid paintings.  I photographed a white cymbidium orchid in many different light levels a couple of years ago. I found the images of her tucked in with 26,000 of my other reference photos.

Thanks for stopping by for a kiss.
