Morning Daylily, 6x6, oil on gessoed plywood board
Started to paint this one last summer and finished it yesterday. It's always such a joy in the morning to go out into the garden to see "what's up". I get so inspired and motivated when I see a new flower open up and know that it's only here for one day. I have to admit that since it's now Autumn, that seems to have an effect on the way that I finished this one. I have another unfinished painting that I'll work on as soon as I can find the photo, and it's a couple of Tiger Lilys. I love those; they are so unusual, and this year I didn't have a big crop but managed to get some photos which I hope I can find.
