Paint Party Friday/Camas Lilies

 
Welcome to my Paint Party Friday sharing!
 
I am draw to nature, as many are, and especially to this particular flower.  It grows in wet areas, during the Spring months in the Northwest, and is known to have been used as food during the Lewis and Clark expeditions.  Sacajawea dug the bulb and cooked them for dinner! 
 

 
These two paintings are about 7" X 9".  I used a delicate palette of cobalt blue, Aurelian and Rose Madder. 
Have a good week ahead!

  11. I really like these two pieces of art. I am drawn to nature, too and love doing flowers. So, you are in oregon. My daughter is moving there soon, near Bend. granddaughter and her family are already there. It's a beautiful place and should provide much in the way of art projects.

  14. Your Camas paintings are so lovely, Julene! You did indeed capture them beautifully.
    I have Camas planted a couple of places in my yard in Western Oregon, and watch for then to bloom each spring. My former hubby is a biologist, and we've eaten the bulbs, they are better baked (the natives cooked then in pits!)
    Congratulations on being chosen our PPF artist this week!

  15. Sacajawea dug up the bulbs and yet, they are still here ... what a blessing :) They are beautiful flowers and your soft pallet has done them justice. Very lovely paintings, Julene ...
