An artist, don't remember who, said that he did not truly see something until he drew it.  Nothing could be truer when it comes to orchids.  I always thought they were beautiful, but it wasn't until I painted one that I realized how amazingly symmetric they are.  Exquisite petals precisely arranged again and again.  Every flower is perfect!!
I have painted many orchids and never feel that I have done them justice.  Next time you see one, look closely, you'll be amazed.
