Lily for the Clearing-#1

This is a painting I did for my office; I believe in reality it is the 17th or 18th lily that I have painted.  It is similar in appearance to Lily # 3, which was the first painting that ever sold for more than $200.  As I was going to put it into my first business, I wanted to steal some of that good energy. And as with my third lily, I used only 4 colors of paint in creating it: White, orange, purple and green.  I feel limiting the palette can add to the cohesion of a painting and it's always a good exercise for me to darken paints with their triad rather than using brown or blue.
