Easter Lilly Still Life by Virginia Fine Artist Cathyann Burgess

oil on linen panel 12x16 private collection


A gift that keeps giving...my 101 year old neighbor, a retired WW11Naval Captain, brought me these lillies one Easter. He recently left us to move into his boyhood home with his daughter in the Blue Ridge area. His generosity, spirited personality, jokes and stories captivated me. Nothing beats keeping company with history!
This is the first year that the lily blooms were just amazing, so I brought them in to 'keep forever' in paint
