Cattleya - Florist's Orchid
Phalaenopsis - Moth Orchid
Lady Slipper Orchid
Triptych: a work of art comprised of three distinct, but related sections, usually displayed side by side as one unit. The center section is often larger than the side sections.
Cattleya - Florist's Orchid is the central piece in the triptych. Creating a three-panel series was a multi-faceted challenge. Each piece has its own composition, and collectively the three paintings are components in a broader composition.
Paphiopedilum - Lady Slipper Orchid, is the final piece in the series, so-named by the resemblance of the low-hanging pouch to a lady's slipper.
Paphiopedilum is only one of 880 different genera in the Orchid family. About 25,000 orchid species, more than twice the number of known bird species, populate every continent except mainland Antarctica.
Each piece in the triptych has a 1.25" dark brown rustic frame,
cream mat with dark green liner, and non-glare museum glass.
