"THE CALLAS"

8"X8"

#30


I love calla lillies - they are one of the most beautiful, sensual flowers in the world. I am not happy with this, but it will do. It's really hard for me to make a calla look pretty and flowing while using a big brush. And I have no patience. Since these are "first impression" paintings, I am trying not to redo any of them, but this was an exception. The lillies started out being in a vase, but I didn't like it at all. The vase was clear and I didn't want to overwork it trying toget it right so I just scraped it and started over.
