This orange lily is one of my favorites that bloom in the summer.  I am missing flowers, color and sunshine right now, as February and March are rather rainy, grey and too early for any flowers but the Jonquil.  I sketched this lily with color inks, and had fun with letting a bit of the inks bleed into each other.  It is about 4 inches by 4. It would be fun to triple matt this one, and frame it with a narrow black moulding.  Sure wish I could afford to do my own framing!  I looked into it, and the matt cutter (a nice one) starts at $3,000.  The frame chop is about the same.  Maybe I will look into lab fees at a university?
