I challenged my Artistic self.........and I did it!

"My Lily" in 4 different Mediums!
This past summer, I challenged myself to paint this photo reference in 4 different mediums. The positive image of these white lilies drew me in and inspired me to paint a watercolour. Then this spring these same Oriental Casa Blanca Lilies came up and I decided to do an outdoor oil painting on wood. Next year the plan is to set up an easel with my oil painting on top of these blooming lilies at my front door to invite my friends and family. In July, I experimented with an acrylic on canvas. Today, I finished framing my watercolour & batik on rice paper and I am thrilled with the results!
