Okay, so somebody broke my orchid. The plant was sitting on the desk in the den. Someone must have banged into it - inadvertently, I am assuming - because there it was with the bloom almost snapped off, just dangling. At first, I was really angry because it meant the death of something so beautiful. Then, I had an idea - the new turquoise glass pitcher I had been waiting to paint. So now, the orchid has a new lease on life for a bit longer in the pitcher.... and a whole lot longer in this little painting. I love happy endings.
