As Promised-The Orchid

Here it is... hot off the easel. Now this was a pleasure to paint with the high contrast of colors and tiny rippled edges. My creative juices are flowing. Color is definitely something that affects the subconscious, even on the dreariest of days. Do you think my mind is tricking me to think of where the orchid grows; in a warm, tropical climate or is it the shades of purple and fuchsia, two strong passionate colors, that makes me feel warm? Yet again, I can almost feel the humidity entering my lungs, where the warm mist is engulfed and slowly absorded. My senses are alert and I am enjoying the signals.
