Orchid's nod to Maxfield Parrish

This portrait od an orchid was taken in front of a window that was covered with crinkled white paper. The paper was crinkled to allow light from outside come in at different angles. The variation of color in the background comes from clouds in the sky angle of the sun. Digital cameras pick up blue from the sky wonderfully. I created this staging in honor of Maxfield Parish.
