The Jefferson Lily, 7 x 10" Watercolor
While my husband was driving his race car around one of the Summit Point Race way track, I sat and painted this lily. Usually, I'm the one checking the air in his tires, etc.; but he had plenty of extra help this weekend and didn't need my assistance. Good for me! The night before this, I drew the main flower of the lily to be able to paint it at the races.
Sitting under the canopy and with drivers and friends walking in and out to see what I was doing; I painted, conversed, walked the dogs, and returned to paint some more. I used only a black and white photo copy of this painting because I didn't want to limit myself to the actual colors of the original photo; I wanted to use imagination--still using reds in mine.
This painting was done at the Jefferson Circuit of Summit Point Raceway. Therefore, the painting just has to be tited "The Jefferson Lily".
