This is a painting from an Orchid that was 100% alive...which begs the question...can you be anything less than 100% alive? You either are or you aren't. Sorry. This one is a stretch for Illustration Friday, but I've been busy with work for clients, and I wasn't even 15% inspired by this week's prompt.
This is an oil that I did for my best friend Erin, it was a thank you for being a great maid of honor and also a Christmas / Birthday present. I covered a lot of bases with this one. Good thing she liked it!
