I took this on the sunny Sunday just passed at Cleveland. 
And yes that amazing phaleanopsis is for real... I think it's cultivator, Jane, is a real life orchid whisperer! Isn't it beautiful?

I've been a bit slack on the blog the last week I'm sorry, but it's all been a bit hectic with many late nights as I start to wrap everything up ahead of the exhibition.... which opens next week!! I must say it still feels like an age away at this point as I've a million things to tick off the list  but finally I am starting to see it all come together, and this is a very satisfying/ terrifying feeling. Not sure which one just yet!

But that's not to say I'm not still painting, painting - madly of course, after all I am an artiste! - and through it all I've been struck with a serious case of the blues. But in a good way! Whether fashion or homes or just beautiful pictures, I am always drawn to blue and white; so timeless and crisp isn't it? So I thought I would leave you with a few of the gorgeous pics that I am loving at the moment; and while I did really wanted to show you the fruits of this inspiration I decided I should keep these up my sleeve till next week.... but I must say, that last image is hard to resist painting!

Well that's all for now. Happy Friday.

Pip, it's so nice to "meet" you. I found you via Anna Spiro... An invitation was sent, but since I live in Florida it was a long trip to take :) I can now see where the inspiration for the orchid painting cam from!!
Your work looks amazing, and I look forward to following you as well.
Have a nice weekend!
