Orchids again

I know, I know, that I said I was going to move away from painting flowers - well, I started going to a painting group on Wednesday mornings, and one of my friends had some photos of orchids so........
One thing that I always find fascinating is how many different ways and versions painters can paint the same subject. My friend and I often paint the same subject but our styles and color senses are so very different that our paintings look very different. We want to have one group session in which everyone paints the same subject - won't that be fun to see all the variations?!

Gotta run - I'm working at the used book store today.

How fun that will be to see... love your paintings... who cares if you're painting flowers... you're drawn to them... and soon another subject will draw you... I love everything you do... it's inspiring... someday soon (I hope) I'll pick up my watercolors again... until then... I'm enjoying everything you do... thank you so much for sharing them with us!!!
