White Orchids on Red

If white orchids seem like an odd painting to post on thanksgiving... well, they are. But I do like orchids, and I don't think I've ever even painted a turkey before. And sometimes I get squeamish about celebrating the beginning of the invasion of this part of the world by colonists, far too many of whom were lust looking to rape and pillage and enslave.... oh, well. At the same time, having a holiday to focus on gratitude is a beautiful thing. So I've got some mixed feelings there, but that's just me- everything is a shade of grey, you know?
