Margy's Lilies

Margy's Lilies 10" X 12" Original Oil Painting on Canvas Board

While I was in Rhode Island, I had an opportunity to hang out with the owner of one of the fabulous old mansions that Newport is so famous for. The house was amazing but I preferred the beautiful grounds. Dodging the sun and the poison ivy, I found a quiet shady spot to set up and paint these beautiful lilies. Thanks, Margy, for a delightful morning well spent.


  1. Wow!!! Lovely!!! Keep 'em coming Hope, you are doing some amazing paintings!! Love the light quality on these, that is no easy feat with white flowers!!

  2. That's quite a compliment coming from you, Diane. I love your florals.

  3. Hi Hope! I met you at Slocums while I was gardening and you were working on this piece. It turned out beautifully and I love the rest of your work that I've seen online! It was lovely to meet you! Hope you had a delightful rest of your visit in Newport!

  4. Beautiful. These really feel alive.

  5. These are nice. The lilies "read" so well. I think flowers are really tough to do.

  6. Wow... beautiful!! Love the composition and strong contrast.
