A recent afternoon spent kayaking on the Charles River provided an opportunity to look at some lilies close-up. Oh they are lovely – especially just before fully opening – and when they are just past their peak. This small oil portrait is one result of the afternoon. I’m sure more will follow. Enjoy.
Congratulations on a successful “Opening”!
It was a surprise for me – the painting started in a totally different direction, then I thought about sanding the panel, then I gave caution to the wind and went at it – stronger colors and contrasts, less detail. Whew!
