There will always be orchids

This one may be one of my favs of the last year. So pretty!!! I like how you paint outside the box so to speak. And the detail on the orchids. And the Crayon eyes!! WOW! :heart::love:

This is a beautiful portrait! The flowers you picked complement her facial complexion so well.
A lovely piece of art.

thank you my friend
we all have that you know, dA overload and then me skip things of our dear friends
i did not see John's gerard butler and the poor guy thought i did not like it
too much to see here anyway that is why i visit galleries of friends regularly to catch up those that slipped me by

Me too, that's how I found your portrait. John's Gerard Butler portrait was a beauty I agree.
