Pretty White Orchid

16x8 oil on Linen Panel

I bought this pretty white orchid to paint a few months ago, it's gorgeous blooms have amazed me with how long they have lasted. I have procrastinated so long that it really is almost done now and I'm afraid with my indoor gardening skills it may never bloom again, poor thing. I think the painting turned out nice though and now I've saved the last blooms forever!

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day.

Beautiful! Orchids are such finiky fllowers huh?! I really want one but I don't think I have the right spot for one just yet.

Orchids are beautiful, I was surprised at how long the blooms lasted, I hope I can get it to bloom again. I'm an avid gardener but the houseplants are much more difficult for me to manage.
