Orange Clivia and -30 degrees

I just inherited a lovely clivia. It decided to bloom right off. The orange blossoms have been a nice touch of hope and warmth in my studio.
I am doing the school yearbook this year. Not much time to paint right now.

I've photographed the clivia for a future painting.
These days the morning temps are below zero... well below... as in -30 below zero! I believe this is the coldest we've ever had.
I'll be heading to Washington next week for 5 days. I am attending the National Board for Professional Teaching Conference: Teaching and Learning 2015. I'm hoping to get a whole day in at the National Gallery of Art. I'm making a list of paintings and sculptures I must see! I can't wait to go!
Clivia shadow... looks like poetry!
