You can never have too many orchids

A new mixed-media piece (watercolor orchids and background, acrylic and collaged tree, and hand-dyed and painted ribbons and fibers as roots

This was a really fun piece to create - one of those things where you get your hands dirty
or, as in my case, covered with paint and acrylic matte medium
Not too much happening right now as I spend all of my time working, knitting, sewing, or painting -
not to mention cooking, cleaning, reading, and occasionally sleeping -
there just aren't enough hours in the day!
Isn't life fabulous!!!!!!!!
