Calla Lilies- Redeux

I finally was able to paint last evening for the first time in a few weeks. When doing that, I prefer to not jump back in right away with a very complicated painting, that I have to concentrate and think about too much. LOL- makes my head hurt!

I still had this photo sitting on my painting table, so I decided to paint it again, since the first one was donated to Postcards from the Ledge in Asheville, the first of this month.

Calla Lilies Again- varnished watercolor on Yupo board, 5x7 inches.

Here's the prettiest part to me, where the blue bleed into the Quinacridone Gold and Italian Burnt Sienna.

I will be offering this painting for sale unframed on ebay later this evening- here's the ebay link. If you think you want it, I would suggest bidding on it. If it's framed and goes into the show, with the show commission, it will be $200.

Mr. Mathis,
I love your painting of the calla lilies. I am taking a class in stained glass. I used your picture as my inspiration for the colors for my pattern (the pattern was something offered by our studio).

The colors in this painting are so vivid and alive and thick. I feel like I could dive into your painting and swim in that rich teal color. It's very reminiscent of the Agean Sea - I went to Athens as a little girl and I remember being startled by the blue and greens of the water, how clear it was and how it changed in color depending on the depth of the water. It was nothing that I had ever experienced before.

Thank you for sharing your beautiful talent with us. (Do you have prints of this painting or do you only sell the original painting?)
