Too much of my wedding day is a blur, but two things I remember: 1) That bouquet was heavy, and 2) The SMELL of those lilies! They were pretty but so pungent!
Stargazer Lilies in Yellow Vase
Acrylic on canvas panel, 8 inches by 10 inches
Similar lilies grew in our former garden, near the gate so I could enjoy them often, but not too close to the deck where we could smell them. I reused a canvas panel from I painting I wasn't happy with and unfortunately, some of the raised parts of the previous painting showed through on the new painting. No matter, I still had fun painting and reminiscing. Enjoy a close up...
