Orchid's First Bloom - Size 6" x 6" - Medium: Oil on Linen Panel - Available here
Day 14 of the Strada Easel 31 day painting challenge. This orchid has started blooming again just in time for the painting challenge. It has bloomed several times over the last few years, and joins my African Violet in bringing a bit of color to my kitchen windowsill.
Patricia Butler loves to paint. Living and working in Austin, Texas, she is drawn to the beauty around her and the challenge of capturing the essence of the scene before her. She counts herself very blessed to be living in Austin, which is a vibrant, growing city, and, with its multitude of lovely parks and nearby lakes and hill country, it presents endless inspiration. She is a founding member of Plein Air Austin, and enjoys painting with the group any chance she gets.
