The original of this image is SOLD

Please send a note if interested in any other originals or prints.

---------------------------

This is one of many illustrations for the book "The Mushroom Peddler's Handbook" illustrated and written by myself and :iconmistressofspam:

---------------------------

la·dy's - slip· per n. [ley-deez-slip-er]

1. any orchid of the genus Cypripedium, the flowers of which have a protruding petal somewhat resembling a slipper: all species are reduced in numbers, some greatly.

Some say these flowers resemble slippers, but if you look very close, you might find that they actually look more like a lady with really large sleeves lol ;)

Lovely Sarah,
You should make this your devID for the duration.
It's one of your prettiest works, and certainly fitting.
Blessings,
Steve

Good idea :nod: I will have to think on that. I plan to make some more pregnant images soon though, so I might use one of them. I'll have to see once my morning sickness it done.

She's looks so peaceful and elegant. I love orchids & the Lady Slipper orchid is a favorite of mine. You must do a watercolor painting of the little family sometime. :hug:
