Orchid Tree, 6x6" oil, plein air, ©Diane Mannion
Yes! Orchids grow on trees in Florida! This tree's near a pond on Worden's Farm near Punta Gorda.
Hong Kong Orchid tree and my painting spot.
Unusual Floridian weather, foggy and cloudy, but at least the conditions stayed the same all morning while about thirty VAC plein air artists painted away.
Afterwards, we had a mini-show. Christa and Audrey donated their works to Worden's Farm in appreciation of letting our group paint on the grounds. Looking forward to painting here again on a sunny day!
Workers harvested sunflowers while we painted.
Today's painting is # 5 of Leslie Saeta's 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge.
Will be auctioning my paintings on Ebay after they have a chance to dry.
