Penny Hobson-Underwood, Orchid in the Dark
12" x 9", oil on oil paper mounted on panel, $580.00
The beauty and depth of aspects of the natural world can transcend time and place when we least expect it. We’ve all had the experience of a glimpse of something that can arrest us and stop us in our tracks. This white orchid quietly sitting in a little pot in a darkened corner, struck me this way – timeless beauty. I got my oil paints and initially did it in one sitting as a premier coup. I then returned the next day to go more deeply into it. A meditative experience.
