This one is "daylily day" from sprite cans, it was sold at our regional AHS meeting

This one is called "daylilies, the real thing" and it is from coke cans, it was raffled at our regional AHS meeting.

It is made from cherry cola and sprite cans mounted on recycled wood

About 15 years ago when repainting the kitchen I stenciled daylilies on the kitchen cabinets..... The kitchen has been repainted 3 times since then. Stenciling is so outdated now... *Blush* but I still like them.

While at a Christmas craft show in Burlington, VT several years ago I found this ceramic tile. Thought I would get a few more when that fancy kitchen remodel happened and I would use them in the backsplash. The tile is still sitting in it's bubble wrap in the china closet....waiting. The company website for the tiles http://wildflowergraphics.com/

At one point in time, I worked crafting wooden jigsaw puzzles. One of our benefits was that we could cut personal puzzles on our own time. While this isn't directly daylily, the puzzle that hangs on my living-room wall is a personal reflection of a love for gardening.

Thank You! Glen!
I hope others will share their art as well. Finding artwork with daylilies isn't easy and ideas or links for where to look can be a big help. Another link I have is a local artist, I've only seen his prints from the website. Click on "Old Fashioned Flowers"

While waiting ( hoping) someone else will post some daylily art, here is some daylily " crafts" I have done. These are made from Filmo, some mounted on wood, even put a few on picture frames.

Way back when Tinker's had garden forums besides the database someone took daylily pictures and used a computer program to make them look like watercolor paintings. I don't recall which program they used but the resulting pictures were very attractive.
If you want to be happy for a lifetime plant a garden!

Could you be talking about these? Program was Microsoft picture it ( long gone, no longer supported). Many many hours creating the pictures from the photos! Need to find an inexpensive program to play with this again.
