EASTER

 Three Calle Lilies, 24 x 30 inch, Oil, St.Germain
 didn't want anything detracting from from the vertical, 
so my signature is also vertical

Hopefully I've not shared this painting with you before (except as a part of the Celebrity Collection).  My original intention was to paint it  for Easter. As you may see, it is NOT a black and white painting. This pic did not go through photoshop, so several colors are blended with the "black."  If I see Calle lilies, my immediate association is Diego Rivera. He had his own outspoken style painting these flowers.
Whether you travel or stay at your own patch, I wish you a wonderful day at Easter!
