Lily and Marble

"Lily and Marble"
10" x 10"
Acrylic on wrapped canvas
I grow red day lilies for the pleasure of having them as subject matter. The day this one snapped off in a storm I brought her in and set her on a dinner napkin while I looked for a vase.  She looked so cozy on the napkin that I brought a marble to add to the composition and photographed it.  

The background lace pattern is textured with joint compound, then painted on when dry.  I love to make up new techniques.

  1. Really beautiful! I love how the lily is mostly in shadow. Beautiful pattern on the napkin, too.
