Bob Cairone - Trillium

Great White Trillium flower

Painting of a Great White Trillium flower
Oil on canvas, 16 x 20"

This painting is based on a marvelous photo by a good friend of mine, Cara Litberg. It is a Great White Trillium, a native of North America. It favors wooded habitats like Illinois' Starved Rock State Park.

I enjoyed working with the sharp contrast between flower and background in this piece. I left the foliage slightly unfocused to keep attention on the flower - a softer approach than is usual for me.

This painting is available only as the original for $500. Please contact me if you are interested.
