I'm progressing on the Hope is Home painting and will post some more progress of it soon. In the mean time, since many are lounging by the pool this summer. I thought I would post a sketch I did doing just that! Last summer we stayed at a lovely inn in Key West and one of the palm trees there had orchids hanging from the trunk. I had my watercolor kit in my pool bag so pulled it out and did this quickie sketch. This variety of orchid had tiny purple blooms that looked like they were dangling in mid-air.
