Ghost Orchid

Big Cypress National Preserve, Florida

The Ghost Orchid (Polyrrhiza lindenii) is a prize plant to find in South Florida and the subject of books and a movie. Thos ewho know where they are protect the location due to orchid poachers, whom rarely could keep one alive anyways. It is best viewed in the wild, if you can find one. here you can see the leafless orchid growing on a cypress tree. The roots have chrlorophyl and photosynthesis takes place in them.

Pearl(Metallic) Print Open Edition

Ghost Orchid print

The Metallic finish is a high gloss with a pearlescent base. (Think mother of pearl) These prints are best displayed with a dedicated light or well lit room. Under ideal lighting, they appear to have their own luminance and are my favorite way to display prints.

Canvas Gallery Wrap Open Edition

Canvas Gallery Wrap Open Edition

Canvas gallery wraps are a great way to obtain a ready to hang product. Museum cotton canvas is wrapped around an internal wooden frame. They have a UV protective spray that protects from sunlight and scratches, and adds waterproofing to the face of the print. More economical than traditional framing, a canvas wrap is an attractive way to add a modern look to your walls.

My prints are all made using the finest quality papers and inks. The limited editions will only be printed 100 times and they go up in value as the edition sells out. Currently, I increase the price every 20 prints sold. 1-10 are artist reserves and will be released at my discretion when the edition has sold out.
