“Orchid Shadow” is a 12 inch square oil painting on a gallery wrap canvas. I decided on a view from above of these orchids in a glass vase. Looking down on the subject I was able to show the lase and the wood grain along with the shadows. On a gallery wrap canvas the painting wraps around the 1.5 inch edge of the canvas on all sides.
Living by the sea year round has inspired P.J. to paint the rolling surf, shorebirds, and the ever changing skies found along the coastline. P.J. spends her time in Old Lyme, Connecticut on the shores of Long Island Sound and during the winter months she can be found painting along the southeastern coast of Florida.
