Painting - Soft Pastel On Ampersand Pastelbord
This is a pastel painting of an Stargazer Lily from a bouquet of mine done on Ampersand Pastelbord.
The lily family has traditionally represented innocence and purity. These motifs appeared as far back as ancient Greek and Roman civilizations and reappeared in biblical traditions. Stargazer lilies have come to be associated with these meanings, but they've taken on additional meanings as well.
The stargazer has added a new layer to the already rich legacy of lilies, which have been a significant floral symbol for centuries. In ancient mythology and in folklore from around the world, the lily has appeared as a deeply spiritual and philosophical metaphor. Developed in the latter part of the 20th century, the Stargazer Lily is a recent addition to the lily family, but this unique and rather exotic hybrid has rapidly risen in popularity to become one of the most adored and sought-after of all lily varieties. The pink varieties are also considered symbolic of wealth and prosperity, as well being as a sign of aspiration.
