The Last Lily

Artist

Nancy Merkle

Medium

Painting - Oil On Canvas

Description

This painting of a yellow lily was painted in early autumn as the last of the lilies in my back yard were fading. Their beautiful colors had blessed me all summer long, so I clipped one last bloom, brought it into my studio and studied its architecture. A shadow produced by the light of a window gathered on the wall behind the bloom. That is where my inspiration began. I suppose it was a little bit of dreaming that kept me going, just like Henrik Ibsen in his poem, "With a Water Lily." Here are the words to his poem:
...........................................................................................................................
WITH A WATER-LILY by Henrik Ibsen
..........................................................................................................................
SEE, dear, what thy lover brings;
'Tis the flower with the white wings.
Buoyed upon the quiet stream
In the spring it lay a dream.
..........................................................................................................................
Homelike to bestow this guest,
Lodge it, dear one, in thy breast;
There its leaves the secret keep
Of a wave both still and deep.
...........................................................................................................................
Child, beware the tarn-fed stream;
Danger, danger, there to dream!
Though the sprite pretends to sleep,
And above the lilies peep.
............................................................................................................................
Child, thy bosom is the stream;
Danger, danger, there to dream!
Though above the lilies peep,
And the sprite pretends to sleep.
