Lily Dance Oil on Canvas 16x20
After many years of painting, I decided to paint the subject of waterlilies. I've always been a big fan of Claude Monet and have probably been influenced by him more than I realize. I began with a couple of waterlily paintings, then found that I enjoyed painting the subject. So I painted a couple more. Now I've painted nine. I suppose that constitutes a series.
I started out painting from a few reference photographs of my own. The subject is endless fascinating to me and I see hundreds of possible compositions. So, do I continue? At this point, I'm not sure. I've taken a short break from painting, since I'm getting ready for an art opening. All the framing takes a lot of time. I'll see if the waterlily muse is still there after the show.
