Gracious, this year's Orchid Daze opened at the beginning of February, and I am just now getting around to posting about it!
Like last year's display, 2014's theme was inspired by three artists. This year, however, instead of Surrealist artists, the orchids paid tribute to three Impressionistic artists.
This little guy was posing so prominently, I couldn't resist. =)
Moving on to the atrium, we have what I think is the most easily identifiable of the three...Monet and his waterlillies, of course.
The focus here is more on individual blooms than a profusion.
Did you guess the artist was Gauguin? I have to cry foul here a little bit...he is technically a Post-Impressionist. And, c'mon, there are plenty of awesome Impressionists left! Renoir, Pissarro, Cassatt, Manet??? Color me disappointed.
|More orchid photos to come...not to mention the fantastic tulip photos after that!! I'll concentrate on those as I endure the suddenly-cold temperatures and FREEZE WARNING for tonight!! =(|
