I am crazy about Joan Senior…in 2008 I painted her in many guises… Jungle Joan and Carnival Joan were two of her many names…today as part of the current series, she is just DayLily…although she is considered to be a white daylily, there is a lot of yellow at her throat…I increased the yellow, leaving just the centre of the petals white…
She grows in the shade of a Katsura tree in my garden, in Toronto, Ontario, but that does not stop her from putting out bloom after bloom for several weeks, sometimes over ten per day…what a womanl

See her (white blooms) in my perennial border below

And these memories and associations that our flowers give us are independent of seasons or of age.
They come to us as well in autumn and winter, in spring and summer; and as to age, the older we get the more, from the very nature of things, do these memories increase and multiply

Joan in the Garden

I paint in many different styles and feature a myriad of subject matter, which I show as individual collections….
I am inspired by the world interpreting it in brilliant colours, often influenced by the writings of famous authors and poets..

    I really like the key gradations between light and dark in the petals which, in my opinion, really makes the piece.

  • I’m really happy you like it Ken…thank you so much…
