Birthday lilies

I painted this interpretation of stargazers as a birthday card for a dear friend who I’ve known for more years than either one of us want to confess!

    These are lovely. I like the way you have captured the vivid colour of the stamens.

    I’m struggling to get pictures to show on my PC for your blog for some reason, which is why I’ve gone quiet of late. I got to this post via the EDM super blog. This is frustrating because I enjoy your blog very much. Hopefully it will right itself.

    Teri was quicker, but that was exactly my first thought when reading your entry.
    Wonderful flowers. But the back study is a gorgeous piece too!

    What a sweet gift, they will last so much longer than cut one would! I love the tones and colors. You make it look so easy!

    Nice work. Always have like watercolors, just not too good at them. The figure study is great. Nice colors and forms. Keep up the great work!
