    I hadn’t done anything with cucullata in a few years, though it’s a favorite of mine because of its graceful shape and fragrance. When you look at this, you might think of a very humid summer night with a beautiful citrus fragrance wafting toward you.

    I need to hold onto it for a couple of months for a show, but it can easily be NFS there if someone wants to reserve it for later purchase—you know where to find me online to discuss details; a PM would work too, but I'm most in touch with my email.

    Thanks for looking, guys—hope you enjoy:

    Robin Street-Morris. Brassavola cucullata III. 2008.
    Watercolor and pastel on 300Ib hot press paper. 11" x 16" (27.94 x 40.64cm).

    This one got the trophy for best in class at the Fall MAOC in Cincinnati--it was my favorite of the four in my display, and it's nice to see some other people agreed. It's such a magical orchid...no end of opportunities to create graceful images inspired by it.

    Thanks everyone!

    It was a pretty good weekend. I got to sell alongside someone I admire to no end, and a college friend of mine I hadn't seen in a long time drove down on Monday to go to the Newport Aquarium with us before we headed home; I'm a Shedd member and it's not so big as all that, but for you other fish people out there, it's totally worth checking out if you're ever in the area--they've clearly put a lot of effort into their shark display and there's a shark petting tank too. For those of you who are interested, here's one of their Sand Tigers:

    Cucullata is one of my favorites. Your painting is superb.
