Daylily Abstract Painting and Prints
The folds and color transitions of daylily buds inspired this abstract oil painting. I wanted to capture the buds' sensual aspect, the creases that seem like skin, but also the tension of building energy that will be released when the buds bloom and interact more fully with the outside world. At this moment, the buds' focus is inward. The green in this painting is different for me; I don't usually use such a bright green, but I felt like it really fit the image.
The original oil painting is 18 x 36"/46 x 91cm on canvas with a traditional .75"/2cm profile.
