Signs of Spring

Sweet Heart Orchid in Green Vase 5"x7" Oil on Linen Panel I have been painting diligently, as I promised. I have finished several paintings, most definitely with spring in mind. The first one is of a small vase I found a while back during one of my antique shop huntings. The orchid in it is a Phalaenopsis, which I think is called the 'Sweet Heart' orchid. I love orchids and this one has been blooming since Valentine’s Day. We got it at the OSU-OKC Farmer’s market for a couple that sell orchids there regularly. If you are in the hunt for the flowers, that is the place to get them. They are at a fair price (considering they will bloom for almost a month) and they are very helpful.
