Friday Pretties: Wild things

Orchids are such fantastic flowers

They seem to me like little faces, like butterflies, elves, fairies - and i love their colours. The little faun on the turquoise background is an older painting of mine that was inspired by Picasso. His fauns and kentaurs keep inspiring me and sometimes, out in nature, i seem to hear a distant flute playing and want to be one of these wild things myself!
