C Lily

"C Lily"

Oil on wrapped canvas
My grocery store had bundles of "C Lilies" in buckets near the checkout. It was as if some little miss smarty pants couldn't decide which lilies they were — calla, canna, crinum or any other appropriate word that might suit these lavender beauties, so she called them "C."  I photographed several of them as I stood in line to pay for grapes.  

It was fun to paint a flower again. I've been painting on a guitar for several days. It's finished now, so I'll post it in a day or two.  It's unlike anything I've posted here.
