Finally had the chance this year to paint some of my slippers. Mostly studies in my sketchbook so far, but also a more finished oil painting of Paph. Stone Praetorian (stonei x glanduliferum) and a mixed media piece of Paph. Duke of Burgundy (JBurkhardt x Lady Isobel). It makes a nice change for me, from my usual bird and animal subjects. Hope to get the time to do more!

Thank you so much for all the kind comments. Any comparison to the great John Day is humbling praise indeed!
I hope in time to get enough orchid stuff together for an exhibition, maybe even a book, but time will tell. I’ll post more slipper paintings as I do them. :)

Wonderful paintings with such attention to detail. May I suggest some Phrag. portraits?
