I was thinking of donating it to the ahs auction. I have to cover the cup in resin first it will deepen the colors. The paint needs to fully dry first

I have to admire anyone with artistic talent. Which daylily did you copy?

Pat I saved that photo a couple years ago and don't remember which it was. And even so I never exactly copy- I used a form I liked and a color pattern that appealed to me at the time I paint. Lol.

Well done Eagleriver. Should we anticipate a collection of these at Lilyhemmer?

Wendy it is a possibility. I have made and sold several items - just not daylilies yet. I also do watercolor paintings and make jewelry Smiling
I am new to this level of daylily stuff and this will be my first Lilyhemmer. I hadn't even looked into wether or not they had sales booths

Eagleriver - you will love Lilyhemmer - we all missed it this year! They do have a few sellers pf related things, though not many, and sometimes daylily items are donated to the auction. Keep an eye on the region 3 page for information including contacts when available. There is also a Lilyhemmer Facebook group.

Your cup is really lovely!
