The gardens are in full July bloom now, so it’s time to go back to the flower series for a bit…. I like to make my backgrounds abstract, and always have light gleaming through…this time I thought the idea again of leaf skeletons, with their lacy patterns against the sun, would be a nice contrast to the strong graphic shape of the Calla Lily…
I kept everything in the same tones of bluish greens and white…Toronto, Ontario, Canada…
Watercolour on Arches Not Paper
Unfurl your cloak of silken white
Reveal your secret wand upraised at length
And not unlike a star you shine serene
To exalt the autumn-tide with silver cups.
Shall we drink sweet nectar as we praise
The simple beauty revealed now in truth?
Or shall we simply sit and idly gaze
Into the eyes of love I have for you?
Calla lily soft and silken white
With open heart I pledge my love this night…Faerywolf
