Oriental Lilies {a new painting}

20110403 Oriental Lilies 18x14
Oriental Lilies
{18" x 14" (45.7 x 35.6 cm) - Oil on Linen}

After several weeks of contemplating and working on this painting I think it is completed...

When I think I have finished a painting I will hang it on my living room wall and observe it over a few days or week to see if there is anything that needs immediate attention. So far this painting has passed the test, in that I have not taken if off the wall to paint on it some more.... so it is ready for its debut as a finished piece.

Here are the work in progress posts about this painting, here and here


During this past week I have been working on another painting and will presently share it with you and there is not update for my NGA copy because I was unable to attend on Monday due to being very tired and the pregnancy keeping me from getting down to the museum. Everything is going well, some days slow me down some and it is easier to work/paint from home.

Have a wonderful evening.

I'm glad you're going easy on yourself! Your body is telling you what the baby needs, and you're listening. I'm sure you'll finish the museum copy before your little girl arrives! Nice Lily painting, too. Don't touch it! -Sarah

Hi Sarah, Thanks for the encouragement to listen and slow down! Sometimes it is so hard to slow down when you love what you do and there is always so much to focus on and create!

I'm with Sarah, Oriental Lilies is an absolute DELIGHT, truly beautiful. All those reaching and swirly petals and pieces are a joy to behold as-is the glass. Wonderful work!!!!
