I first saw “Bellissima” this voluptuous Yellow Orchid in a pot under a low canopy of an avocado tree. I was mesmerized by its natural beauty and size that reached the height of 10 1/2″.
The shade cast from the tree covered the plants and grass beneath it like a heavy blanket, muting all color to a dull tone. The one flower immune to this effect was this Cattleya Orchid radiating from under the tree like a morning sunrise. The Yellow was so bright I saw it from a block away and just kept walking towards it. I just had to take this beauty from nature and create the original pastel painting “Bellissima”.
The yellows from this Cattleya orchid where so bright that they changed color throughout the day. As I hand painted this “Bellissima” Archival Digital Fine Art has the same metamorphosis that happens in the original pastel painting as the daylight changes the colors in the art changed too.
This “Bellissima” framed with a gold rounded profile frame with black etching all around the inside. This unique one of a kind work of art. “Bellissima” was exhibited at Neiman Marcus Fort Lauderdale during their Trend Event and Artist Showing.
