Tiger Lily – 6" x 8" Oil on Canvas Panel SOLD

I was inspired to paint a complementary color palette painting with this tiger lily. The organic and irregular shapes of the petals were a delight to capture, and it was further emphasized by the shadow shapes cast by the flower.

When opportunities of painting flowers come about I try to seize them and make the most of them. This poor flower was only given one day to exist in our house as our cat, Slim, loves the flavor of flowers and preceded to devour it during the night… lucky for me she did not break the vase it was in as she had succeeded in doing a previous time.
