"Lilies in Purple"

Lilies in Purple

Oil on Board  18x14"
Bridget Hunter 2013

The inspiration

Framed but tweaked with a leaf crossing flower at rght. It was only after I saw the photo that I thought it needed this.

I had some friends over for lunch and was given beautiful flowers and a stock of wine. How wonderful. These lilies just cried out to be painted. Do we painters always see still life in everything, eyeing up shapely pears and ripe colored mangoes while getting suspicious looks from shoppers?


  1. I do it all the time in the supermarket, always checking the shape and colour before I buy! I love the lilies and also your background colour, really sets them off!

  2. So you're a fruit loiterer too ! Thankyou for visiting

  3. Those are some outrageous purples! This one will be grabbed up at your art tour for sure!
    p.s. I've met so many of my art friends at the produce section!

  4. I love your description of the "outrageous purples" . Think I'd love to be an outrageous pensioner but still practising :Blue Sky :-)
