One of my favorite flowers is the lily. There are many varieties of this flower and many colors to choose from. This particular floral creation was inspired by a trip to a friend’s garden. She grows these gorgeous lilies and I wanted to bring them home with me. So I did. Not with a shovel (she might have gotten upset with me) but with first with my camera and then my imagination. I enjoy taking pictures and capturing my ideas and then bringing them home and enjoying them further. Photography is a wonderful way to get ideas for paintings. You can initially capture your vision and then later explore it fully and really get to make it your own creation. Beauty is all around us at all times. Seek and you shall find.
