Green Orchids Diptych

“Forget past mistakes. Forget failures. Forget everything except what you’re going to do now and do it.”
– William C. Durant

Green Orchid Diptych

Two 4″ x 12″ x 1″ Acrylic on Canvas

Here is another painting, from my past works in floral.  I never could get a good photo of it, but I remember it was a really fun one to do.

On Thursday, there is a “Be Inspired – Blog Hop” taking place with a group of artists from the Copyrights – Artist’s Rights group over at LinkedIn.  It is being hosted by Brenda Pinnik.

The only criteria is to show the proper way to be inspired by other’s creative work but not cross the line into infringement, either by way of lawful infringement or by ethics. I am going to participate, because as a self taught artist, I have been influenced by a lot of art.  I am going to use an example by the artist, Susan Dunker.  I found her when doing some exploration into Fauvism.   I think this is going to be one of many  steps we take into educating people about many of the issues surrounding copyright infringement.   Join us, if you have something you’d like to share.  Or just stop by on Thursday and I will have a link to some of the other artist’s blogs.

By the way, Ms. Dunker works in pastel, so if you want to see some beautiful pastel work, check her out here.

About William C. Durant

William C. Durant, founder of General Motors, consolidated much of the fledgling American auto industry under one roof. He was born in 1861 in Boston and grew up in Flint, Michigan. His innovative business model was to buy out vendors and acquire competitors. Forced to resign from GM due to this management style, he founded a new company with his race-car driver, Louis Chevrolet. He later regained control of GM but lost everything in the Great Depression. He died in 1947.

    That is fantastic.
    Looks like something that would belong on a stained glass window

    I agree with Leslie, they would also look good an either side of a mirror or a hutch.
    Great work, Beth!

    I have always liked your shapely works on canvas. This diptych is no exception to that. I can envision this hung each side of a doorway.
