Orange Calla Lily

I'm really pleased with this one. I finally signed and glazed it today and thought I'd post it. Believe it or not, calla lilies really do come in this color. I say that because sometimes I make up my own flowers.

I have replenished my painting stock enough to take them down to a boutique or gallery. I just want to make prints of them before I let them go. It's such a final thing to sell a painting. I already regret not getting better photos of some of the ones I've sold. So, first things first.

I finally faced my giant pile-o-papers today. It's never fun, but I do feel a great sense of relief when I'm done. For a reward Lily and I had BATs (Bacon, avocado, and tomato sandwiches) on sour dough. Have you discovered this ready to serve bacon? 25 seconds in the microwave. I think it is positively evil for bacon to be that easy for me to eat. Bad bad bad.

I love your calla lilly painting! Sorry for not being up on such things but in what medium is your painting? Oils? I love the texture I can see in your photo and the colors are so full of light--just wonderful.

The BATS sound great; I'll have to try it this way. Oh dear, now I'm hungry.

Hi June! Thanks. I love to play with texture. In fact I deliberately keep my texture sort of random. It gives me something to work against as I paint. I use acrylics in lots and lots of layers.

THis is breath taking! I'm very curious about the glazing medium you use. Is this painting acrylics or oil? And do you have professional pictures made of your paintings done when making prints or do you use your own. Sorry about all the questions. I'm just admire them so much and do a bit of painting myself. I thought "it doesn't hurt to ask". Thanks :)

Wow, this painting is gorgeous - I absolutely love the palette, and (being a major fan of textures too =), the textures here are fantastic! Beautifully done!
