Floral Painting of Lilies, June in Chicago, by Canadian Artist Kim Blair

June in Chicago, 12x24

This past June we were in Chicago soaking up the art, architecture and flowers...

We stayed in an area of the city that had an abundance of lovely old brick homes, and brick walk-up apartment buildings, with various forms of front yard gardens growing next to the sidewalk.  One morning, on our way to catch the train, we walked past these glorious white trumpet lilies.  Elegant blooms with a dusting of golden pollen, perched on tall, slender stems with short green leaves.  Each plant was easily 4 to 5 feet tall!  Parked on the street next to the garden was a deep red car... the perfect backdrop.

12x24 inches on canvas.
