White Oriental lilies, purple Peruvian lilies, and pale yellow carnations make a sumptuous, yet elegant bouquet.  When I was arranging the bouquet and pondering the title for the painting, the famous painting by John Singer Sargent--"Carnation, Lily, Lily, and Rose"--came to mind.  Someday I will paint like this!
