New Series-Multiple Orchids / by Lisa Goesling

The first installment of my new series of Orchids features a single bud the size of a dime. This 14"x10" artwork is only about an eighth of the way through. I used an attachment lens on my iPhone camera called an olloclip which slips right over the lens. It enables me to magnify the bud about 15x the actual size capturing a lot of detail missed by the naked eye. By piecing together a variety of views, I've developed patterns and shapes that if you use your imagination, seem to mimic the forms of the human brain.
