Often my latest painting is my favorite and this couldn’t be more true than with this painting. I adore these lilies that look like downward pointing tiger lilies, but they actually are called Turks Cap lilies. I may not be able to sell this one as I am very attached to it. I think it has a softness and a ‘fairy tale’ feel to it that reminds me of some of Jean O’Neill’s illustrations in a Fairy Tale book that my father used to read to me when I was a child.
Everything around us and from our past influences our work and our creativity. I certainly was not thinking about fairy tales when I painted this!
