I remember the day like yesterday. It was early summer in New Hampshire and once a week I had a sitter for my four kids so I could go to the studio. This day, I took this lily with me and came home four hours later with the painting. My kids were so enthralled; they were/are big fans. This painting is done in the intense, emotionally-packed acrylic style of those early days. It arrives beautifully framed and ready to hang.
