phaius tankervilleae (36" X 36"), november 2006
mixed media (mostly oils)

this was a commissioned piece, based somewhat on a photo i took at the sf conservatory of a phaius tankervilleae orchid bloom stalk.

what is lost in the photo of the painting is the mosaic-tile orchid pot and the textured, almost 3-dimensional petals of the flower and windows.

the painting is actually 2 separate 36" X 18" panels making this a 3' X 3' piece.
