The Legend of Lilly

I would like to dedicate this in honor of iconic fashion designer Lilly Pulitzer Rousseau, who passed away today. For those of you who do not know who/what Lilly is, let me just tell you, it's a big deal. 

A brief history: Her schoolmate Jacqueline Kennedy, while first lady, was photographed wearing one of Pulitzer's dresses -- and made her a star. How awesome is that?

Her bright, colorful patterns included everything from roses to sailboats and from alligators to shrimp! One of my roommates swears by Lilly. We both gush over all of the new patterns (and the old ones too) together, and we've decided that Lilly is always a classy choice. 

So, in leu of today, I would like to post all of my paintings that were inspired by Lilly herself. Thank you so much for making the world a brighter - and more colorful! - place. I hope that one day I will make a positive impact on the world by doing something I love, just as she has.
