One part of a whole

This little 7.5"x7.5" was done from a photograph of lots of orchids...the trick was to "edit" down the picture reference and choose a part of the overall and focus in on something that would make a nice painting or good composition. I try not to be held hostage by my reference material or to what's in front of me...I use my "artistic license" and will invent, move, change color, repeat or exaggerate my subject.
