©A.K.SIMON - Origami Orchid 6" x 6" oil on 3/4" Ampersand Panel $100
On Saturday's we have open studio for the public so I spent the time today doing this piece. Foot traffic was really light today because it was gloomy, cool and raining in Ohio.
This was an orchid too big for the opening of the small vase so it was kind of squeezed in there. It almost appears like a flower puzzle with the pieces needing assembled or parts folded together. So, it's not really origami, just looked like it to me. I'm working on a series of single vessels with vibrant blossoms so this is the first companion piece to "Clearly Pansies" posted on March 27. The interesting thing is that I did not use any black in this piece. It really is difficult to render something as beautiful as "mother nature" creates!
