A New Day - original oil painting of a day lily


This is an original oil painting of a day lily. 

Day lilies are beautiful, joyous flowers but each bloom only lasts for one day. I wanted to capture the sense of energy and joy from the high summer, combined with the sense of transience and a fleeting moment.

It is signed using an archival pen in the bottom right. The painting comes in a classic chunky frame that will suit most interiors and is ready to hang.

The image size is 30.5cm x 30.5cm (12" x 12") and is in a chunky frame that measures 43.3cm x 43.3cm.

It is painted in oil on a board prepared with two finely sanded layers of gesso.
