Today’s painting is another look at the stargazer lily. This time, I placed it against a light background.  It is interesting to note how refreshing it feels to paint the same subject against two very different background.  I also pulled my easel way back for this little painting.  I’m very happy with how the small silver bowl came out!  I ended up scrapping it off a few times, and repainting it, trying to capture the illusion and feeling of silver with just a few strokes of paint.
