Lady’s Slipper



“Lady’s Slipper”

This is a 9”x12” acrylic painting on canvas of a wild orchid that can be found where we live in the NJ Pinelands during the month of May. It needs specific natural conditions to grow, so they are not everywhere. One must seek them out. This year we have about a dozen on our property. They are unique and beautiful!

    When I lived in the mountains, we had a sweet little patch off one of the trails, and I used a couple to make a lady's slipper flower essence

  13. OMGosh Barbara. This is just stunning. The black background makes the flower pop. Lady's Slipper is hard to find in the woods. Once while we were hiking I lifted a branch and there were a dozen LS growing. It was an incredible sight. Have a great weekend.
