Dark Wine Orchid in a Clay Pot Watercolor Painting

Dark Wine Orchid in a Clay Pot Watercolor Painting


This painting was inspired by one of the many orchids growing in my studio. It was the first to start blooming this season and with icy wind whipping past my window, I couldn’t resist painting it.

The little plant’s flowers are a deep, dark wine with speckles on some of the petals and in the center. Three blossoms are open with buds promising more to come. Its roots twist and wind in the clay pot and sneak out of its confines.

Even if you don't grow your own orchids, this painting will give you a connection to the natural world. This little plant will keep blooming and blooming long after the flowers on a living plant have faded.

Framed and hung in just the right spot in your home, this painting will bring a bit of color to even the darkest corner. You'll have flowers no matter what the season and be reminded of the joys and magic of nature each day.
