Do you like orchids? I do. Some people have the enviable green thumb with these exotic tropical flowers and have them flower year after year. No, me. All I can hope for is to enjoy them for a few weeks, then buy another plant in the following year. Or, take pictures at a florist shop like I did back in September. Of course, working from a photo is a big challenge. I can hardly see what's going on in the dark shadowed areas. But I liked the design of several long terracotta pots arranged at different levels and the idea of not having to pay for several pots to paint from life. Cheap I am.
