Day Twenty-Two - Magenta Orchid

This is the only houseplant I own! It has survived for years sitting on my bathroom windowsill - which is lucky as it is near the sink! Otherwise goodness knows when it would get watered!
6" oil on board £110 incl UK postage

I love the rich colour of it's petals though there is that "insectlike" quality of orchids which slightly unnerves me.

  3. Nice orchid. I intend to try Rosemary brushes. With the challenge and work I haven't had time to even think about converting dollars to pounds.

    1. Thank you Sandra. Yes I know how you feel. I thought I was coping well with the challenge but that was while I had nothing much else on my plate, now there is so much, I can't sleep with my thoughts all over the place, not what's needed for me today! when I wanted to get ahead of myself. The brushes are lovely and I am enjoying using them. Hope you have an easier time till he Thirtieth!!
