Summer lilies

The lilies on my cousin's farm were spectacular this year. Some flowers are so shapely and colourful that they practically beg to be painted.  Gardens are such a source of inspiration for me and my art.  There is something about trying to capture their beauty on paper that soothes my soul  and centres my whole being.

Lovely. The bright colors are very enticing. Very summery.
