TM8430 Young Lily 12×12 oil on panel
The yellow lilies arrive like a tight, yellow fist thrusting out of the water, as if to say “Here I am, you better be ready!” I am, with my zoom lens and soggy sneakers. The feeling of density and lush growth around the lily is equally important to capture. The painting is based on a photo of the flower, and a sequence of photos documenting the lily pads over time. The yellow ribbon around the edges grows more pronounced as the pads age, eventually turning brownish red and almost violet. The upturned pad in back, probably pushed aside by another emerging bud, is another common sight at the pond. Add a scattering of duckweed and summer’s enthusiasm is clear. Enjoy!
TM8424 Family Portrait 12×12 oil on panel
Family – it’s everything and everywhere. I started with a painting of the middle-aged white lily, but she seemed to be asking that I include the soon-to-open bud behind her. So I did. Come visit her at:
