I tried this same Orchid reference in pastel on black paper a few weeks ago this is Colored Pencil and black marker on Strathmore velum bristol - 8 x 10" I like this better - but it took a lot more time to get it to where I liked it -
I was recently diagnosed with stage IV small cell lung cancer - so I am enjoying my life and living one day at a time - Making art makes me happy.
I play hammered dulcimer and that makes me happy too.
I have a great husband and our two grown children are married so now we have four wonderful children. I am fortunate to have a close, loving, extended and immediate family.
