Floral Oil Painting of Lillies and Pears, 9" x 12"

"Lillies Today"

This 9" x 12" oil of Lillies was, as the title states, painted today. Considering I have two cats and Lillies are not safe for them, I had quite a time keeping them away from the still life set up. Of course, if Lillies were healthy for cats, there would have been no problem. They would have taken a nap.
I love painting white flowers and these beauties shimmered in the natural light from my skylight today. I found three nearly perfect pears to go with them. As always, the paint on the blooms is generous. The pears pop off the surface and look good enough to eat. Hmm. Maybe that's what the cats were after.
