Phoenix Lily

A daylily renews itself in a burst of fire. Or perhaps a volcano erupts a flower of lava, a Lavalily. I have over the years identified myself with the color orange. But I am just as fond of black, or purple, or shades of blue. Fortunately there are flowers in those colors too.

I just transcribed the rest of my flower paintings so there are still more to come on what is currently "Garden By-Products." The official title of this piece is "Phoenix Lily."

"Phoenix Lily" is watercolor on illustration board, 10" x 7", November 1991.
