Pink Showy Ladyslipper Orchids

This summer I have completed only a few things and one is this group of Pink Showy Ladyslippers. It is our state flower and we are so blessed to live in an area where there are many varieties of orchids that bloom! Seems odd doesn't it as we are such a very cold state but they thrive here. You will find them on the edges of the forests and growing in the ditches...it is pretty amazing! I have painted them before and my first original was purchased by the Secretary of State a few years ago to hang in her office. That was a great honor for me. Hopefully this one will find a good home as well!

Janie...It's amazing how you keep your colors so bright and clean...this is beautiful. Wish I could grow these gorgeous flowers in Texas...but...it's too hot.

Janie, as usual it's a beautiful painting. Love colors and the way to expressed their movement.

Mollie they can't grow here either. I usually go to the botanical garden in Montreal to see them once a year.
