Calla Lilly


Acrylic on 9x12 canvas sheet
Available through DPW gallery/auction

This is my submission to Dana Marie's challenge blog "Rendition Me This" - where an image or painting is posted as inspiration. Artists then paint their rendition of the image - be is same or similar. It's a fun challenge and you should click on over & check it out.

I have always loved the calla lily - it's trumpet shape is so unique for a flower. And the numerous colors that this lilly can be found in are very rich & demanding for attention. I chose to go with the yellow variety, as I loved the chance to work with those buttery yellows again. And of course, my close up zoomed in view is sort of standard for me with flowers.

Very nice work Nan! I love your mixes of yellow and the creamy pink you managed to put in your flowers.
