Day #1 of 30 day painting challenge. Thirty paintings in 30 days.
Since my move to Hawaii a month ago, I normally wake up in time to paint the sunrise over the ocean. This morning there was not much of a sunrise as it was a rainy day here in paradise. So I decided to paint indoors and chose my current theme… lovely orchids from the garden where I’m housesitting. I have been painting in the panoramic format of 6’x18′ to take advantage of the wide views of the horizon, but today I decided to flip my sketchpad vertically for a change. The orchids remind me of winged beings ascending to heaven.
