I am happy that this is one of two paintings accepted for the Energen Show which will run from March 9 through 20 at their headquarters downtown in Birmingham. It is indeed an honor to participate along with many talented Alabama artists they have chosen this year.
The Cahaba Lilies are unique in this area on the Cahaba River in Alabama. They bloom once a year in late May and early June in this beautiful habitat near Birmingham. They require swift current and direct sunlight to flourish. Each flower blooms for one day.
Perhaps the best way to view them is by going down river in a canoe. One of the best populations is found in the Cahaba River National Wildlife Refuge. They even have their own festival on the last Saturday in May in West Blockton.
