“Therefore, to be possessed with double pomp,

To guard a title that was rich before,

To gild refined gold, to paint the lily,

To throw a perfume on the violet,

To smooth the ice, or add another hue

Unto the rainbow, or with taper light

To seek the beauteous eye of heaven to garnish,

Is wasteful and ridiculous excess.”
William Shakespeare quote


  1. Your painting of a lily is most certainly not "ridiculous excess", Azra - it is beauty pure and simple. I love the design and flow, and the colors are wonderful.

  2. Love this painting Azra,nice brush strokes.
    and that cake looks great too ,you are really talented.

  3. Your painting has made the quote vividly stand in my mind.. lovey job on the Lily Azra!

  4. looking at this and your current floral posts, I think you are developing an interesting botanical style...keep it up.


Thankyou so much for taking the time to comment, its always a pleasure receiving each and every one.
