Moth Orchids

Commonly called Moth Orchids, Phalaenopsis come in a wide range of sizes and colors. Though the care required to maintain and grow Phalaenopsis is very simple and they can be easily kept as houseplants, it wasn't until propagation techniques improved that the plants began to be produced cheaply enough to make them affordable for the average buyer. Nowadays almost every supermarket sells several varieties of Moth Orchids. And surprizingly enough, you can get these beauties to bloom again year after year.

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.
