the Lily Pond

One of a group of ponds that are part of a wetland
area within Elk/Beaver Lake Park, these small ponds
are full of flowering lily pads. As many as four or
five varieties of water lilies make spectacular
floating carpets on the ponds.
I painted this piece en plein air Friday morning and
plan on a return trip just as soon as I can.

Oil on wood panel 14 x 11.

"Live each season as it passes;
breathe the air,
drink the drink,
taste the fruit
and resign yourself to the influences of each."

(Henry David Thoreau)

Gettin' some paint on it!

Oh this one is wonderful! The color of the sky is fantastic, and I love the shimmering brushstrokes all around, anchored by that area of the pond. Wow that looks like a grat place to paint!

I really like 'the Lily Pond' - the colours are beautiful and so is the composition and brush work. Very nice piece.
