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!

  13. Such a spirited painting! I want to play too!!

    Last night a friend received a lime green/dark purple orchid for her birthday. And when I saw your lovely orchid today I had to smile.

    Yes, the Color Challenge is exactly that! But I find this new way of working fast with a challenge exhilarating.

    Happy Weekend =-)
