Roadside Daylilies

31 Aug

Over the weekend I delivered two paintings to the Utica Library.  I’m participating in the Central New York Watercolor Society Signature Show for the month.  The show is filled with amazing watercolor paintings by many Central New York Artists.  I was impressed with how much talent is right here in the local area.  If you like watercolor definitely take the time to visit.  Here are the two paintings I have hanging in the show.

Daylilies are a very temporary flower, usually dying within a day. Like the daylily, our cry goes up that life is short and our cup too little filled. Oh to have given others as much pleasure as freely as the daylily.

Roadside Daylilies #2 by Katie Turner Seeing Daylilies alongside the road is like a breath of fresh air. I think some farmer’s wife must have planted them long ago – before they moved. Now I get to enjoy these glimpses of color, left to the wild.
