Mystery Bin Orchids

Picked up this plant from the bargain bench of a local nursery - no label, no suggestion as to it's heritage. Two years later I was rewarded with profuse blooms of violet and chocolate, about 2 1/2 inches across and having a faint sweet-peppery fragrance early in the morning. Here, the indigo sky of morning before sunrise emphasizes their moody colors, lending to their mystery. Love them. . . "
- Nancy Boudreau

This is a 5" x 7" acrylic painting on gessoed and lovlingly textured mat board. Sealed with a gloss clear coat and delivered in a cream-colored 8" x 10" mat, ready for framing. The text above is handwritten by the artist on the back of the painting. This is part of an ongoing series of small works, paintings with prose and poetry, that was started in June 2007.
