I love the yucca plant in all stages - just waking up from the winter, watching the center flower stalk appear, the first large white blooms and the fantastically shaped seed pods - there is no bad time for me. I thought this photo was a great study of white. Had I asked you to paint a white yucca flower, would you have included the wonderful hues you see here? I love the rich butter cream with the hints of green. Only in the brightest highlight is it really white. Would you have painted it that way? I'm not sure I would have but I know next time it will give me a lot to think about.
