My studio is packed up in boxes and mostly in the new location, but far from being set up.  So, I'm taking the opportunity to post something from about a year ago.  I am a great admirer of flowers, and love to see the surprises that lie inside!  
This painting was a composite of several  reference photos I took during the spring while in California.  The callas had recently been doused with a spring shower and were absolutely beautiful.  It wasn't quite at sunrise when the photos were made, but early morning.  These three seemed to shimmer with the light, and the leaves had such an interesting ruffled effect.   A painting waiting to come into being!

The best part is making that new home and studio your own! The calla lilies are beautiful!
