My White Cattleya Orchids

White Cattleyas

This is my latest, just off the drawing board.  A painting of my white cattleya orchids that bloomed on my porch railing in front of my little travel trailer in Clearwater, Florida.  There were about a dozen of these beauties, all open at once, and as fragrant as the finest perfume!  This is a varnished watercolor, done on 22" x 30" Ampersand Aquabord, 2" cradled panel.  It is wired and ready for hanging, no frame or matting required!  It is the newest way to display watercolors, making them as durable and open to admiration as any oil or acrylic painting.  $500.00.

Happy Pink Bouquet to Cheer up a Winter Day

Happy Pink Bouquet

Here is a happy pink bouquet to cheer up a dark winter day.  11"x 14" gallery wrap canvas.  Pink cosmos with red and yellow mums, a great autumn combination, in a cute little milk pitcher.  Sides of canvas are painted to coordinate with the background of the painting.  This original painting is available for $150.00. 

Sunny Florida for the Snow Birds!

A Little Beach Scenery


Here is a little beach scene I did a few months back.  Acrylic, 8"x 8" and lots of fun to paint.  In a collection up in Canada now.  They need some beach scenery up there in the winter time!

Yellow Cattleyas


Here is a good example of using aureolin yellow and Antwerp Blue to get some dimension into yellow flowers.  Quinacridone Magenta and Permanent Rose play their supporting roles in the flashy lips on these sassy cattleya orchid blossoms.  With all their fluffy ruffles, it looks like a circus! This happy little watercolor measures 5"x 7" and is available, matted of course!
