For decades, Betsy Westendorp has been painting the beauty of creation in luminous, intoxicating colors, bearing a bravura of energy and her uniquely expressionistic style. For this work, Westendorp offers a tight focus on a collection of white orchids against the probable dark of night sky, orange, flame-like petals providing a contrast. A still life of contemplative calm, the painting is a celebration of nature’s quiet but extravagant gestures.
