In a Private Collection

Hello,

Did you have awonderful Easter weekend? We did, though it was also laid back with some time spent outside enjoying the wonderful weather!

For this painting I am trying out a new style of frame. Initially I had this painting in the gold trimed dark frame, however I thought it was too dark. This silver frame brightens the whole painting, bringing out the white edges of the petals. I hope you like it as well.

Finally the days are getting longer and brighter!

I am so excited about the warm weather and what it means it is bringing, SPRING! Last week I spent time prepping my vegetable and flower beds. There is still more to do, there always is, however I hope to be rewarded soon with fresh peas, arugula, and flowers from my garden. And I plan on incorporating these items into some paintings...

Lilies and Rice Bowl, 8 x 8 inches

Still Life with Lilies and Rice Bowl

To me every still-life painting has an overlying emotion, and often I am drawn to setups that are calm, maybe quiet, and always filled with color and life. These lilies seemed to be a pair, like two friends hanging out and sharing the company with another. In this case, the new addition to my still-life collection, a small rice bowl.

Also, this weekend I began to work on a list of frequently asked questions (FAQ) about this series, Bountiful Observations, like what inspired it, my process, and such. If you have a question about the series, please leave your question in a comment and I will incorporate it into my answers.

Thanks for stopping by,

Liz
