|STORY OF REDEMPTION (CALLA LILIES)
My last three paintings have been so detailed and utilizing small brushes. I was ready to go bold and big with a 22x 32
DECKED edge painting of calla lilies that I photographed in Italy in 2009. In order to get a brighter outline of the calla
lilies I adjusted the background and was surprised to see this amazing color contrast. I decided to try something different.
It feels like a blend of stain glass (with the masking) meets watercolor. In most of my paintings I use a process called
“glazing” where a light color is added “wet on dry.” The only place on this painting where I did that was at the very final
process where I glazed Chinese white over the lilies to give them the texture I was looking for.
If you look at the progression page, you will notice I painted the background first. I mixed several paints on my palette and
as I added them to the paper I let them “bleed” into each other letting the paint mix and blend creating some very
Every time I sit and look at this painting I see something new, something exciting and different.
