Lily-of-the-valley Blossoms for a Short Time


Lily-of-the-valley Blossoms for a Short Time. Pastel drawing made in May 2013. In Estonia Lily-of-the-valley only blossoms during May, hence the name for the drawing. They smell incredibly good and at that time you can find the artist studio filled with these beautiful spring flowers.

On the drawing in addition to the artist's signature and year, there is the title written in Estonian.

Size: 25 x 25 cm

Artist Tauno Kangro on the subject of nature in his art: "This is one of the themes in which I have created the smallest number of artworks. However, every time I do draw nature, I truly enjoy the process. For example, in summer months, I enjoy drawing in my garden in the early morning hours just after sunrise. That’s the moment when the air is fresh, it’s quiet and the beautiful morning light falls perfectly on the apple tree blossoms. Then I sit under that tree and draw for hours and time disappears.

The few drawings I have made within this subject are truly unique because these represent very joyous moments for me. Every piece has its own story – the flowers have either a special meaning for me, or have been a gift from my children or someone else very dear person to me.

The blossoming of nature is a magnificent sight and I feel that there is always a reason to record it in drawing."

However, we will always let customers know if the artwork is not available before collecting their payment. In that case we may be able to offer alternative options to choose from:

  • An alternative artwork, or a selection of artworks which the artist believes are similar to the original work in terms of price, size, style and/or theme.
  • An option to order a custom made artwork. Please note that the process to create an original custom artwork may take several months.
  • In some cases the artist is able to create a new limited edition artwork based on the original or create a new unique artwork inspired by the original piece. In either case, we will email the customer with detailed information regarding the possibilities.

We will never collect any payment without checking the availability of the artwork first.
