This Painting Is My Tribute To Easter And The Arrival Of Spring. Happy Easter!

May flowers always line your path and sunshine light your day.
May songbirds serenade you every step along the way.
May a rainbow run beside you in a sky that's always blue.
And may happiness fill your heart each day your whole life through.
~Irish Blessing

Easter spells out beauty, the rare beauty of new life.  And no flower is used more in life celebrations, than white lilies.   Although the trumpet lily is most commonly associated with Easter, I chose to paint this white Asiatic lily as it's the one I grow and am most familiar with.   

I purchased a blush pink lily and used it as my guide for this painting. With their reference to innocence, purity and new or everlasting life, white lilies are also a perfect flower and a popular choice to be included in bridal bouquets.

What a fun stained glass look you've achieved with this lily. Lovely.

Laura Leeder said...

That's just how I feel about you Kelly! I've been enjoying your blog posts for a while now.

Thanks Eileen. I photographed my painted lily and then printed it off in grey scale. I drew in the lines several times before I was satisfied with the overall design.
