Inspired by More Orchids - For Japan

1/8 Sheet
Arches 140#CP

I painted this quite a while ago - but today, with even more news about nuclear disasters and with Japan so heavy on our hearts, I wanted to post this -- for hope, for prayers, for Japan.

In flower symbolism, the orchid stands for beauty and strength - all so fitting for the kindness and beauty of a country, of a people. And their strength - to hope, to endure, to build again ...

Prayers continue ....
