Lovely Lilies

"Lovely Lilies"
11" x 14"

In April, Bob's daughter, Jamie, was married to David in a beautiful spring wedding. Jamie chose green with orange accents as her colors. This is the wedding bouquet that she carried, tightly wrapped orange Calla Lilies. They were stunning, and so different from the bridal bouquets of my era long ago. The bouquet was on display at our home for the large family brunch the next day, so I quickly took several photos. Last night while painting with my Thursday night bunch at my home, I pulled out all the stops and went for a very wet, loose rendition. I've always liked the shape element, and I like the results.

Thanks, Claire. You and I get a lot of pleasure from painting items with family connections.
