This is another of the paintings that I'd only just sketched in and hadn't finished.  Thought it was worth the effort to paint it.  These lilliums, a kind of lily, grow in our back yard in June.  So, if this flower was right outside my door, why didn't I get it painted?  Funny thing about them, even in a warm light they are a cool yellow.  To me, gardening is really three dimensional art.  Isn't it?

Interesting to hear yellow described as a cool color, but I can see how it can be in this beauty. Lovely!

Simple painting but it says all that has to be said about this beautiful bloom.

Thank you Sherry. I kept looking at the flower and wondering what what wrong with my eyes! Paint what you see.

Ralph, thanks so much. Appreciate your words.
