After painting at the camellia house I went over to the regular greenhouse at the Planting Fields Arboretum. There were lots of orchids and tropical plants. I did this of some of the plants, many of which were near the roof. This is 4 x 6.


  1. this is an amazing painting... simply stunning

  2. Beautifully painted, Joan! I've never visited the Planting Fields Arboretum... I'm looking forward to Spring so much!!! Even though, I shouldn't complain with the wonderful weather we've been having.

  3. Outstanding, Joan -- you've made such beauty from what is often a tumble of greenery! BRAVA!

  4. I can almost feel my hair frizzing up with the warmth and moisture of the hot house. Beautiful job on this, Joan! Doesn't that earthy soil smell wonderful? Awesome job on the light through the windows too!

  5. It is so beautifully painted Joan! very well done indeed!
