Oil Painting of Orchids and Lemons

"Dancing Orchids"

This floral still life of orchids and lemons was based on a concept of shimmering light. I wanted to portray the chief player, the flower on the right as I saw it, shimmering with light. The rest of the objects - the lemons and green glass jar are merely supporting cast. There's lots of beautiful brush work and lush paint. See the detail of the main player below.
