This month I was crazy for water lilies. The lilies in my pond were getting ready for the winter and put away all their lovely blooms. Feeling nostalgic, I pulled out images I took earlier in the year when visiting Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania and got all inspired. This was one of the first paintings that emerged.
It’s a 10″ X 10″ X 1.5″ oil painting on cradled board. It’s for sale for $300 which includes taxes and shipping anywhere in the conterminous US. Just email me below.
Water lilies are perennial plants that usually grow in dense colonies. Flowers grow from stalks arising from thick, fleshy, creeping underwater stems that are buried in the mud. Some flowers bloom at the base of the pad making them appear as though they are sitting on the pad. Others have their stalks extending high above the pad, like these purple beauties. Each bloom has a spiral arrangement of its petals.
If you live in the area of the Triangle or Triad of North Carolina, feel free to visit my studio, Osprey Studio. I’m usually there working. Just give a call to make sure I’m in. 919-260-9889.
