"Best of Show" Award, Nature Works, Tulsa Ok

I was honored to win "Best of Show" at this year's Nature Works show in Tulsa for "New Mexico Lilies".  As I mentioned in my last log, this subject is new for me.  It was after seeing them everyday when I'd head out to the studio that I thought I'd paint them.  Though I call them lilies, they are known as Jimson weed and spread rapidly.  They open at night and close when the sun's heat returns the next day.
