Dance of Orchids
During our annual orchid society show, I was among a group of photographers invited to a preview. While jostling for a spot amongst a crowd of tripods, I caught an unusual angle. The orchids seemed to dance in front of my lens. So, with a light-hearted attitude and brushstroke to match, I painted them with French dye onto silk crepe de chine. This is a rather large work, framed in a Ballet-Russe era style frame.
