Playful Cannas

20x24 - oil on canvas

Don't you just love Canna Lilys??? I do. They are just crazy and colorful and other worldly. These live on the San Antonio river behind the Pearl Brewery. Loved painting them.

Canna Lily Bees

Canna Lily Bees
20x20 inches - oil on canvas

I took a picture of some beautiful cannas on the river behind the old Pearl Brewery. When I was looking closer at the photo I noticed some tiny bees among the flowers. I zoomed in and saw the painting. I tried to use the paint more like I use pastels with layers of color on color. Fun.
