Oil on canvas

Mom's Calla Lilies

  • My all time favorite oil painting. I painted this with my mom.

    My mother is one of the most talented people I have ever met. Successful at everything she tries.

    One rare afternoon we decided to paint together. She pressed me to try painting on an all black, wet canvas. I chose the subject-matter, she provided the instructions. 

    "Dont' over think it." "Just put paint on the canvas." "Blend, easy free flowing brush strokes." 

    In late 2019, this piece was hanging in the Hickory Museum of Art, in the members exhibit.
