Artist's description:

I’m an orchid collector and grower. To me these epiphyte plants are floating nature sculptures and a great inspiration to me. Often the flowers have this Zen quality of appearing very briefly to change the complete look of an otherwise sleepy foliage attached to a tree trunk. And yes, thre are wild orchids whose flowers look like this…
Here I try to capture this zen quality atop a nondescript background.
Mulberry paper is a traditional paper handmade in Thailand. Mulberry leaves are used there to feed the silkworm in the silk industry, the sticks used to make the paper. The resulting paper is a thick parchment type paper, strong yet pliable. I have the paper made to this size to get the deckled edges which adds to the textural effect.
The close up picture is of higher resolution to be able to get a feel for the texture and brush strokes of the painting.
