I took this photograph of a yellow orchid at Huntington Gardens in the greenhouse. I love how the light is shining through the petals, orchids are one of my favorite flowers, they are so inspiring and have such beauty and diversity. I think this one looks like it is reaching out for a hug... I hope that you will enjoy this photo!
Here is a sketch of a big eye gothic maiden. Although they rarely occur in my art, I'm a big fan of hats! This fairy angel has a serious and contemplative quality. I'm not sure if I'll paint her or not, but I did enjoy sketching her.
