The Cala Lilly


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.

About rbaker

Russell BakerSacramento, Northern California, United StatesAs a student in northern Minnesota I enjoyed being an artist. My uncle Charles: C. X. Carlson, a noted author, artist and muralist was a great influence me. I sketched and painted everyday until age sixteen or so, then it seemed as though life took over. Now, 40+ years later and retired, I have returned to the more pleasurable pastimes of my youth. This year, 2007, I started drawing, painting and playing music once again. It will be interesting to see where these endeavors guide me and how my skills in turn develop over time. Everything I offer here is an original. Some may be renditions of other works I find interesting, however originals just the same. If you see something you would like to purchase, email me.
