White Trumpets

These calla lilies are quite large... three white trumpets.  They make quite a statement on the larger canvas and if you click on the image you will see a close up of the impasto (thick) areas of oil paint, that to me, resembles the thick texture of calla blooms.  I wanted this painting to show the strength of these callas,  along with their curvaceous feminine shape... their yin and yang.

White Trumpets has a presence...

24x12 inches on narrow profile canvas (needs some drying time for the thicker impasto areas)

Thank you for your comment. I love Victoria as well.
It is nice to meet another of the Daily Painters.
I love your Calla Lilies, especially the white ones. They were part of my bridal bouquet!
