Arum Lilies...   :heeha: my favorites...I just  :smitten: them... Beautiful, wild, strong, majestic flowers in my eyes...there is just something about them.

JennyLynn, Natalie, Gail and Karen... your paintings are really beautiful.  It is so awesome to see how each one of you have made this painting your own. Well done to each and everyone of you  :clap: :clap: :clap:

Lillian, Yellow Ochre was the shadow color.

 :thankyou: Nina.

I hope Karen reads your post and doesn't ruin her lovely painting after what I said.  My head isn't very clear in the wee hours of the morning.   :2funny:   ... well, not even at the best of times.   :2funny:

They are difficult decisions aren't they Rita?   ???   w/c   :-\  oils?   :confused:  We are a sorry lot!   :2funny:  As Lloyd often tells me, 'When it comes to anything art, you're a kid in a candy store.'   :2funny:  I finally settled on my w/c and drawing ... but when you see some of the oils/acrylics being done ....   :D    ::)
Focus...that's the ticket.   O0
Cheers, Val

Karen, Natalie, Jennylynn and Gail.. You all did lovely paintings of the arum lilies.  Like CB, I call them Callas too.  Just to show how you always learn something new.... I was in the florist industry for 26 years before retiring.  These flowers were one of my favorites as well and used them in lots of weddings; and to this day I had never heard them called arum lilies before!  You girls should be proud of your work!!
