(53) Lily of the World
6 x 6, oil
I love the name of this plant. We have state flowers, why not a flower representing the world? It is also very fragrant and lovely, but tougher than I imagined it would be to paint. I "pushed and pulled" paint around for quite some time with this one.

Beautiful flowers Faye. You have a good eye for compositions.
Good quote that you chose for this post too.
Failures are frustrating, but it is the challenge of the difficult that attracts me too.
