Calla Lilies were made famous by Georgia O’Keeffe. Her large painting of a calla close-up is one of the most recognized images of the 20t century. It’s easy to understand why with those beautiful, subtle colors and impeccable draftsmanship. And the calla’s sensuous shape makes it pretty seductive for the artist.
So my challenge this time was the breaking the cliche with the unusual colors as well as making them part of a larger still life.
