Don't you just love Fleur de Lis? I know I do. I looked up the meaning of it and in French, Fleur means Flower and Lis means Lily. Yes, I guess it does does look like a Lily. Being from the south, and a New Orleans Saints fan, the first thing I think of is the NEW ORLEANS SAINTS!!!! LOL.
It is also a very beautiful symbol in art. When you see a Fleur de Lis, what do you think of?
I have enjoyed painting different fleur-de-lis over the last several years. Here are a few that I have painted.
This is the very first one I painted. I gave this one to my Mom to put in her Fleur de Lis half bath.This is the other one I gave to her.
One of my fellow co-workers wife is a teacher, so I gave her this one.
A few more I have done.
Fleur-de-Lis also reminds me of Mardi Gras so I painted a few with that theme.
These last 3 are my favorite.
Roll Tide Roll!!! Even found a way to get Big Al in on the action.
This is the last one I painted on July 4th. I really like how this one came out.
I am now trying to decide what Fleur de Lis to paint next. Any suggestions?
