This painting is actually one I’ve just reworked. While it was a nice enough image before, the original background was doing nothing for it, so I played around with it a little, and now have a painting I’m happy with. I didn’t play with the flower itself because it seemed fine as it was. No gilding the lily, there.
I love the smell of lilies and, periodically, my husband will buy some to keep in the bedroom (away from the cats who could be poisoned if they decided to munch on them) to make the room smell wonderful. The downside is that the orange stamen stain everything as they fall.
