Here’s another chinese vase. The best part was “hand painting” the design on the vase. I like how the rim and gold lines turned out. What I don’t like are the uneven sides and the incorrect perspective of the base and rim. Unfortunately, I only noticed the mistakes when I scanned it!

This is the first time I’m painting the Pigeon Orchid (dendrobium crumenatum). Our little plant has actually bloomed before, but I wasn’t quick enough to paint the flowers then. My Mom and I were new to the Pigeon Orchid and we were more accustomed to longer blooming orchids. I was very surprised when these wilted after only a few hours! I made sure to catch the blooms (and bud) this time though.

Garlic is definitely one of my most favorite subjects to paint, and my most favorite part to do in a garlic painting is putting on the thin white tips of the cloves.

I may add some more to this in the future, but for now, here is the last painting in the Dancing Lady series.

I’ve joined all four of the ACEO oncidium orchids into one image along with some very simple titles. When I have time, one of my favorite hobbies is to create artistic designs on the computer. I like to combine text, images and interesting patterns to try and create a visually appealing design. It’s a fun way to express creativity!
