Mixed Media on Fabric
57 x 76 cms
This is an early experimental piece which ignited my love of flowers and painting them. It was painted from real life but the use of mixed media gives the painting an abstract feel. Each different variety of lily holds a different meaning. But the most common meaning is purity and fertility. The sweet and innocent beauty of the lily flower has given it the association of fresh life and rebirth. The lily is the flower most commonly associated with funeral services as they symbolize the innocence that has been restored to the soul of the departed.
