Luxuries of Lilly

14 x 14 Oil Painting on Canvas
Painting with The Masters
Art within Art Series



This was so much fun. I was totally relaxed painting this
but took me a bit longer than I expected. I found a similar
nude to this lady in one of Diego River's paintings that 
I had not seen before. I got as many calla lilies in the
composition that I could get in it as it was his signature flower.
If you ever look at his work you will see so many
of his painting that include calla lilies. I wanted to see how
long it would take for me to paint all of them! lol!

Must have been his favorite flower to paint. There are several
reasons why he used them in his paintings, because they are
beautiful, exotic and a popular flow in Mexico for festive occasions.

 Looks Like Lilly considers them a luxury too.
Is she celebrating her new hat?
Enjoy!
