TIGER LILIES #2 ORIGINAL WATERCOLOR PAINTING

TIGER LILIES #2 original watercolor painting is 9 x 12 inches on Arches 140 lb paper.  I snapped the photo reference for this at a restaurant table. 

"Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin;  and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.  
 Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?"
  
Matthew 6:28-30

SECRETARYBIRD ORIGINAL WATERCOLOR PAINTING

Secretarybird original watercolor painting, 8 x 10 inches on Arches 140 lb paper.  This is a bird native to Africa that stands about 4 feet tall.  It's a member of the raptor family.



“It may be hard for an egg to turn into a bird: it would be a jolly sight harder for it to learn to fly while remaining an egg. We are like eggs at present. And you cannot go on indefinitely being just an ordinary, decent egg. We must be hatched or go bad.”
C. S. Lewis
