Out of time, drawing at the Orchid Show, New York Botanical Gardens, New York

Cream Orchids © Maud Guilfoyle, watercolor, 11 x 7"

While drawing moth orchids at the botanical garden I was the only artist among  dozens photographers with their smart phones and state of the art cameras. I felt as though I was from another century with my low tech charcoal pencils and journal. 


  1. Love your orchid watercolor- so fresh! I live near Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, PA and the orchids are my favorite... along with the platter water lillies in their ponds in the summer. Dried orchids are in my sculptures these days. Nice to meet you in cyber space Maud! Keep up the good work.

  2. Outstanding work, absolutely stunning ! I tell you , you are not alone in being in another century :-)))
