Hawaiian Orchids

06/20/10 – Hawaiian Orchids – While on the large island of Hawaii, we took a trip to the Hawaii Tropical Botanical Garden. They had unimaginable vegetation there of every shape, color and size. I was especially inspired by the stunning Hawaiian Orchids.

Trying to capture the elegant exquisiteness of these flowers has brought about this pattern. The petals have been created using transparent glass. This is to help provide the impression of the delicate nature of these blooms. I have used a dark green for the base of the flower and yellow and lavender for the center of the blossom.
