"Yellow Lily" (matted)

Yellow Lily
Oil on prepared Paper
matted archivally

Yellow sunflowers, yellow daisies, yellow freesias, and now today a yellow lily! Hmm I wonder what that means. I don't think of myself as a big yellow user, but maybe its because there are lots of yellow flowers out there!  I remember painting this in a yard of an acquaintance. There were hundreds of the orange tiger lillies with the downward curving petals, but for some reason this is the one I chose, maybe because of it's rarity in the scene. Later, I regretted not painting the tiger lillies, and started looking for another opportunity. It took a long time to find it again, but I did eventually, in Maine, outside a motel where we stayed on a mini honeymoon. (I think every couple should have at least a couple of days of honeymoon each year!)
