Angel’s Trumpet Lily- Painting #77

8 x 8 in. Oil on board 3/26/2016

Easter is closing in on us and lilies are everywhere. I wanted to do one for Flower Saturday but couldn’t find any interesting in the stores so I had to turn to the interwebs for something a bit more inspiring. Then I found Angel’s Trumpet lilies and fell in love. Whata big gorgeous beast of a flower. They hang upside down and this is what it looks like when it blooms. I found them fascinating. Loaded up my brush to get loose and let my hand dance around her curves. It felt like the ocean at times. She almost feels like a mermaid to me, if THAT makes any sense. Felt like, in the end, a bit of a homage to Vincent. I’m ok with that.
