Inner Beauty VI: White Beauty, by Canadian Artist Kim Blair


I am getting bored with just giving these paintings a number, so I am going to pop back to each one in this 'Inner Beauty Series' and add a second part to the title, just for fun.  It makes it more fun for me and I assume for you too.
This lily is another fabulous specimen from the front garden of the same friend that Monday, September 8th posting came from.  Oriental varieties have a distinctive fragrance that I adore,  it smells heavenly... although I do know of a few people who find it a touch overpowering in a room.
Fragrance is another tool flowers use to attract insects for pollination purposes.

This lily would be a lovely addition to your home, without any concerns about the scent being overpowering...

SOLD

i really like the way the light is barely gracing the petals - and their wonderful softness! the yellow/orange/green/background colors are so subtle together, too - lovely! thank you!

There is so much depth in this painting! Of all the pieces in this series, this one really stands out for me :)

Very nice! Lilies are so much fun to paint, aren't they? They're so sculptural.

Kim, this is a lovely work. Love the greenish glow from the center, the perfect background for the rich hues in the stamen.

Another beauty, Kim. I love lilies but one of those people that the smell is too much which makes it hard for me to paint them. So thanks for allowing me to paint "vicariously" through this wonderful piece.

This is a gorgeous lily. The color is lovely.

Delicate and so sensual Kim. A very intimate setting resulting from the cropping.

What a beauty! As Susan said, these are all so intimate. Great job with the highlights on the petals.
