    Default Paph. NOID Oil

    I was visiting with a Thai friend this evening who just returned from a trip home. He surprised me with an oil painting he brought back for me. This is a quick pic - it's hard to squelch the glare on an oil.

    Any ideas on who the creature is? I haven't had a chance to hit the books yet, but it was such a cool gift, I wanted to post a pic first thing.

    it's a dead ringer for either hirsutissimum or esquirolei. i can never tell the two apart myself...

    Right geography, Jason, but the dorsal's not right. It has the insigne's dorsal shape, even though everything else if off.

    sample

    somewhat variable and the dorsal often reflexes. since it's a painting, i would assume some artistic license as well, but even if that were a photo, it would still be well within the normal range of hirsut/esq in my opinion. admittedly i have never seen esq x insigne but i don't see any evidence of insigne's spotted dorsal and those petals look like hirsut/esq.

    Everything about the flower but the dorsal looks like hirsutissimum to me, but with insigne's dorsal shape--reflexed to be thinner-looking at the base. Don't know if hirsutissimum ever does that with its dorsal or not. Is that what you were referring to Jason? Wasn't totally sure from your post.

    I'm agreeing with everything you guys are saying, but I haven't seen a hirsut that reflexes to that degree. The rest of the form is very hirsut, but the colors again are an artistic interpretation thingie, I think (yellow for green).
    Oh well - thanks for the help with something different!

    it seems to be a recurring theme across many types of paphs that the dorsal invariably opens up nice and eventually reflexes to varying degrees, depending on species and cultivar. charlesworthii is notorious perhaps for that, and I am sure that all the awarded ones were judged *early* on in the flower's life before the dorsal reflexed. I have not personally seen a hirsut that reflexes to that degree, but I would surmise that it would certainly be plausible. nice painting in any case.

    links to various hirsuts; note the increased reflexing in the alba clone (a feature which may have been bred out of the regular colored line, at least the severe examples)

    I have no idea, BUT....

    That is one cool painting. Is the background black? I oil paint occasionally, and collect art, and love a good painting. You're right, that is a very cool gift! Thank your friend at least twice!

    It is black, Matt. (as opposed to matte black...) He had several others, but this was my fav! I'll try and get pic of the others.

    He's going to be importing them, I'm quite sure, and will be setting up a Website for e-commerce. I'll let you know how that progresses.
