Lilies


After a few days off from painting and much needed time to reflect and fill myself up again spiritually; I painted this little vibrant painting. I found these lilies at the grocery store and when I placed them in the vase I detected the most wonderful scent. They are elegant and beautiful in color. This time I didn't strugle with the colors used in the painting because I did a preliminary abstract color study and then translated that into the painting. It worked out very well and I didn't muddy the paint.

I'm not eating enough cookies again to comment. Love the lilies and the colors in your palette. Yellows and violets speak in a loud voice to me. Very pleasing!
