WHITE ORCHIDS, 10x10, oil by Sharon Benner

My white orchids are in bloom and the sunlight was really catching on the ruffled edges to make a strong statement.  I love to paint any white object, and in this painting I'm happier with the bloom that is behind the larger bloom.  I think it reads more painterly.  My eye keeps going to it rather than the main event!

This is so beautiful Sharon. I bet it's even more beautiful in person.
