Giant Spear Lily - Brenda Bryant
Giant Spear Lily
Oil on canvas
30.5 x 30.5cm
I have I have placed the giant spear lily in this painting as it is only found in a small area in southern Queensland and New South Wales. Also, it is now listed as Volnerable under the NewSouth Wales Threatened Species Act. The flowers grow in springtime on a stalk which may reach 5m in height. Quite something!
I have added walking stick palms in my painting, as they grow prolifically in this area, especially through Mebbin Forest. I do like the pop of red!
