7x5" original oil

For my January eBay painting, I decided to offer a lily. I like to paint the unexpected for these little auctions. It's a great chance for me to have a change of scenery as well as test what else people respond to. I like to have a very concise look at art shows so I prefer keeping subject matter the same, but I also like to paint flowers I've never painted before, so my monthly eBay paintings are a great outlet for that stretching. 

I photographed these lilies in my sister-in-law's back yard one Easter. 

I love the pale blue reflected side of the lily's back, and the sunny green inside getting the orangy reflected light from the stamens. Drama! 

Note to winning bidders: this painting is on flat panel, ready to pop into a 5x7" frame

Mmmm. I love my palettes as much as the finished paintings.
