Paphiopedilum by Lucinda Hayes

It was after the tsunami, I was inspired to paint a flower that was found in New Guinea. Using a this sizing on my canvas I carved designs of artifacts my father brought back from Papua New Guinea from when he was stationed there in World War II. The background of the canvas is carved with designs inspired by the indigenous culture of New Guinea, where these orchids can be found growing in the wild.
