This summers' temperatures must have been perfect to facilitate the display of lilies surrounding our home. I am in the process of creating 96 views (finished piece 84"x40"), everything from a lily in full bloom to the aftermath of shriveled up petals or 'tepals'. I've completed six so far adding color to some and letting others stand alone as black and white studies. What surprised me is the range of colors, deep blues and purples, bright oranges and yellows…absolutely stunning!

These Columbines have an incredible amount of movement, taking turns layering over each other. Working within a square format makes it challenging in terms of composition. I needed to edit just how many flowers would fill the space. Adding a touch of color to the finished piece creates energy without becoming too overpowering.
