Starlight Stargazer Lilies, 12X16

Starlight Stargazers by Nancy Medina
Oil on Linen Board

Starlight Stargazers is a painting of one of my favorite flowers, Stargazer Lilies, also one of the most beautifully fragrant lilies. I love their leopard print and their brazen way of wearing pink and orange together and still looking smashing at parties. I have painted stargazers in watercolor in the past, but this was my first time to translate them into oils.

These lilies are growing from an earthen pot I found in historic Fredericksburg, Texas, while delivering art to the gallery there recently. I will be heading out to Fredericksburg with a load of new works next week and look forward to the monthly trip through the prettiest part of Texas, the Hill Country. If you are ever in Fredericksburg, please stop by The Good Art Company Gallery at 211 W. Main Street and say hi to Jill, the owner and see my latest paintings. Our gallery Web site is taking a few days off for some renovating but will be up and running again soon.
