The Cala Lilly – Oil on 16 x 20 Stretched Canvas – Painted August 22, 2007 – Sorry for all the nostalgia paintings of late, but on occasion I like to go back and review. The black and White oils when I first started painting were particular favorites of mine. This one hangs in a private collection here in California and was the first flower I ever painted. I've done other Cala Lilly paintings since, however I don't think any of them are as striking as this one. If you look at it carefully you can see the softness of the petal.I still love it.
