Another stunning painting from Edinburgh by the American artist Charles Courtney Curran.
The lilies are Nelumbo lutea, the American lotus, that has a sweet, magnolia-like fragrance ...
It's quite a small painting and yet I felt like I was breathing it in.
The woman under the green parasol, on the left, was the artist's bride who carried these flowers in her wedding bouquet.

What a wonderful painting. I'd never heard of Charles Courtney Curran--must find out more.

Isn't it lovely, Kristina? There were several artists I'd barely/never heard of.
