My Paintings - Lilies (Flora Series)

14 February 2011


Simple flowers, yet stately and elegant.  
Unpretentious, pure, delicate; signifying devotion.

Can mean beginnings, and even endings;  never transitions.
Passive and  devoid of passion.  Albeit enduring.

The Lily is a Mayflower.  
Muses of dewy, springtime days.

Bouquet of hopes and promises,
Like a nightingale's song of wishes.

Tiger Lily

"And the wand-like lily which lifted up, As a Maenad, its moonlight-coloured cup,
Till the fiery star, which is its eye, Gazed through clear dew on the tender sky."

 -  Percy Bysshe Shelley



  1. Beautiful sweetie..just delightful.

  2. Aww thanks Alicia. Always awesome to receive affirmation. :)

  3. Oh, so beautiful! Is it terrible to pick a favorite, because I find the first one just makes me feel... I don;t know... happy, insprired. Thaat would be something I would hang in my main room to keep that feeling with me. You are incredibly talented PB. Mind you this comes from a science geek, so take it for what it is worth.

  4. Aww... Jamie, you're absolutely a sweetheart!
    Maybe sometime I will try to paint something using you as my art "muse". Then if I get some extra money, I'll ship it over to you. :) Thank you so much!

  5. Psycho, your paintings go beyond art. They actually speak. The first one is life at its peak. the second one tells a story of devotion and love. Thats the way I perceive them.

  6. Lillies are one of my favourite flowers...

  7. Your art is beautiful! I somehow missed the link until now. I envy you. I have to use 3D programs to create my shapes and forms and movement. You do it with your hands, from the soul.
