Pink Ladies

From the corner of my eye I spied these pinky lavender calla lilies. Some of the flowers bobbed and danced on long leggy stems as I pulled this pot out from the display stand. They appeared a bit tipsy as I took them to the check-out counter... I think they had been given a bit too much to drink while sitting on the shelf... like a group of bored party girls.
Once I got them home (and dried out), I placed them against my still-life backdrop to begin my painting. They practically shouted at me to paint them large, show off their beauty, accentuate their natural curves... so I listened to my muse.

These pink ladies are larger than life in this 24x40 inch format.
