Description Watercolor painting of White Orchid. The Greek myth of Orchis explains the origin of the plants. Orchis, the son of a nymph and a satyr, came upon a festival of Dionysios in the forest. He drank too much, and attempted to rape a priestess of Dionysios. For his insult, he was torn apart by the Bacchanalians. His father prayed for him to be restored, but the gods instead changed him into a flower.
Maja Radočaj, Europe, Croatia, Velika Gorica Member Since March 2012 Artist Statement Since my childhood i love drawing and painting. I can say that I paint my life way from earliest age. Start of my artistic creation dates from my school age, and continues with art school that I finished in Zagreb, Croatia in 1977.
Since then I had many exibits in public. Till today I have had over one hundred exibits, some of them were group and some just mine. I have attended many art colonies for humanitary causes.
A lot of my paintings are in private properties. I still paint with joy and enthusiasm :)
