Buttery Orchid

Buttery little phalaenopsis, blooming on my desktop, what a December treat, seeing you so robust and thriving after your summer-long camp outdoors under the maples. All that evergy stored up, feeding my need for green through the next three months of winter. Can I tell you how thankful I am for your miracle?
- Nancy Boudreau

This painting is about 5" x 7" acrylic on gessoed mat board, protected in a cream-colored mat. As with all these little studies, the text above is handwritten on the back of the painting, which is also signed and dated.
