garnet tipped lily

 This garnet tipped lily will be available for silent auction at the Rhapsody in Bloom art festival at the Luthy Botanic Gardens here in Peoria IL.  As an artist participating in the art show I was asked to donate to the auction.  I made this simple yet classic lily just for the cause.
 Peoria is a small town with big city stuff.  We have a pretty decent zoo, plus another wildlife refuge not far away.  We have a museum w/ a planetarium.  And we have a botanic gardens.  I try and support our local facilities as much as possible.  It just seems pretty cool that we have access to this stuff.
Down to a week and a few days before this big show.  The Friday before Rhapsody is the second installation of Artists on the Boardwalk at Junction City.  Next weekend will be crazy!  This weekend and next week will be all about the prep.  Which means new flowers and wreaths!!!
