Rattlesnake Orchids - Kimono series: Rattlesnake orchids are found throughout the woods on Lopez Island. Clusters of them are veritable clones in that they radiate from the same rhizome (root source). Therefore you will find the white lacey patterns on the leaves nearly identical in neighboring plants. The "models" for this painting were borrowed from behind my woodpile on Hughes Bay.

Giclée (ghee-clay) is French for "to spray". In short it is a process whereby the original artwork is rendered digitally. Artists at the printery, or atelier, work with the image on a high resolution computer screen to get it completely accurate. Then the image is printed onto a substrate of either canvas or paper. My works are on museum-quality paper using archival inks. I limit my editions to 100 and often add gold leaf or bits of hand coloring.

Price of shipping to be determined.
