Unknown pink Cymbidium hybrid, and spray painted back drop with sunlight and shadows, metallic, matte, and gloss paints on a pre-printed semi-gloss surface,
The poster was originally a print shop test sheet and I often used floral supply paints for the great colors and I was always looking for interesting things to use as block-out patterns. I used to cut up the sheets when making post cards. A few survived intact.

My thoughts, art is to enjoy…to capture the moment or to process the idea.
I started with a pocket Canon Elph usually with an armful or 2 of groceries,
I’ve upgraded and now use a Canon EOS 550D and Photoshop Elements along with Picasa.
My aim is to make you smile. Come back often, there’s always something new.
