1) What
inspired this piece?
A
photograph that I saw. The vivid green color – I always love vivid, deep
colors.
(I was given written permission from the photographer to use the photograph as a reference.)
2) Why did
you give it that title?
It was
also the title of the photograph I was given permission to reference for this
painting.

use a photo reference or model?
The
photographer is Stephen Kinsey. See his work here: http://fauxhead.deviantart.com/
4) Is
there a story or message in this piece?
I hope so.
Perhaps this little green orchid was the ugly duckling that grew up to be most
beautiful green orchid.
5) Any
other thoughts?
Orchids
are so lovely! I’m glad I finally painted one. I saw a display at Phipp’s
Conservatory in Pittsburgh once. It was mesmerizing. Marvelous.
