30 Words :: This Lovely Lady Unfolds



thick waxy sepal
enveloping  
parti-colored petals
e f f l o r e s c i n g 

into 
untainted natural symmetry
stem strong, flexible
beauty in her face, 

grace in her arc,
delicate sensuality
this lovely lady 

u n f o l d s 
during winter

A Few More than 30 Words...
These orchids are on sale at the Riverfront Art Gallery as part of their Winter Garden juried exhibit featuring art in any medium with a floral theme. I had the good fortune of having three pieces accepted, two of which are shown below, and one (the Bursting Forth bracelet) which sold on the opening night of the exhibit! The exhibit closes this weekend.


If you are local in Central Wisconsin and looking for a great gift for Valentine's day, or just want a whiff of spring in the midst of bleak winter, these orchids and the amazing floral art in all price ranges is a great choice!
 I know...because I just bought the one above for myself! ;-)

Your photo makes me want to go out and buy an orchid - that seems like a good cure for the winter blues. Beautiful poem and congratulations on the show, your work is so gallery worthy!

You said it so well!

And congrats on the show. I tickled myself a little because it looks like the koi in the painting above your work are taking a moment to appreciate your pieces as well! :)
