Who doesn't love a close up view of the inner parts of a flower?
This painting happened organically from a local art celebration surrounding one piece of art by Georgia O'Keeffe - Two Calla Lilies on Pink, 1928. My main focus was painting a kimono jacket fabric with 6 Calla Lilies as my main entry. This 3 calla piece was the "practice" for the kimono and soon it became too good to leave as a practice piece. Like many artists and gardeners, Georgia O'Keeffe has been a lifelong muse of ideas as I plunged my nose and my camera into the center of flowers and then see what happens on silk.
