This is a painting I started towards the end of last year. I wanted to do a Hansel and Gretel themed painting for a long time, but wanted to avoid the traditional candy house in the woods theme because it's been done so often. I thought, why not do it in winter? It's finished and there are prints of it!

Even though I'm going nuts trying to get ready for five back to back
shows, sometimes the inexplicable can happen with a painting. In my
yard is an orchid tree. My neighbor is always telling me to paint the
orchids, and the tree. I keep telling him I'm allergic to flower
paintings. In fact, I swore I'd never paint flowers unless I was either
paid or had a darn good reason. So I was outside staring at the tree
thinking about picking one to paint it. And as I stood there one fell
off the tree and landed in a pile of dead leaves. (The psychology of
the orchid in dream analysis crossed my mind here) I thought it was sad
but beautiful, laying there white against the brown. And something about
knowing it would be wilted by morning made me think this one needs to
be painted. I picked it up, along with the leaves and painted this as
quickly as I could. I realize it's not the best painting I have ever
done, but sometimes the idea, or the story, can be more important to me. It's titled "Fallen Orchid" 6x8 oil on panel."
