Pictures of My Purple Lilies

I had a pleasant surprise the other day when I saw that these beautiful flowers were finally opened and displaying all their glory.  If you are an artist, please feel free to use these two pictures as reference images – aren’t they just lovely?

Purple Lilies #1

Purple Lilies #2

A quick update on the three paintings I’m working on for the annual Oil Pastel Society Competition:  #1 is at 95%, #2 is 95% and #3 is about 5% and will be at 95% by this Friday.  Next week all final touches will be completed and be submitted – then I can start to introduce you to these works.  It’s been a long process, filled with learning and challenging experiences but worth every minute.

I promise to catch up with everyone’s posts – have a great week!  Mary

      Hi Poppy, don’t you just love those purples! Yes, they are striking in person and at the end of the day they’re gone and tomorrow is another day with a new flush.

      Thank you so much! At the beginning of June my husband was working in the yard and thought all the long stems were weeds and cut them all down – oh my to my surprise! But, lo n’ behold they came back stronger than ever and just gorgeous. Glad you like them.

  9. Can’t wait to see them, Mary!
    Have fun! 🙂
