Miniature Orchid Sketch

















I bought this miniature orchid at the flower show. A leap of faith for me, as I somehow manage to kill live flowers/plants almost immediately. I did the sketch from life, as opposed to working from a photo like I usually do. It was nice being able to see how everything worked, and to turn the plant if I needed to see better. And so far I've kept it alive for two weeks. LOL

Can't see it very well, but it looks worthy of an Ikebana award!

I can never keep house plants alive but so far a miniature orchid my daughter gave me over a year ago is surviving! If I can do it, you can too ;o)
