"Summer Gold" - Watercolor (image size 7" x 5" ) available at First Street Gallery
These were hybrid lillies that I bought as potted plants to decorate my back patio during the summer. I decided to paint them when I noticed how brilliant they looked in the morning sun set against a shaded background.
"Tulips A'glow" - Watercolor (image size 5 3/8" x 7 3/8" ) SOLD!
This painting was inspired by a visit to Ironstone Vineyards (Murphys, California) last spring when all the tulips and daffodils were in full bloom. These white tulips happened to be in an area where the sunlight was filtering through them mixed with areas of deep shadows, causing them to appear to be "glowing".
