Waterlilie #2

#1180102    oil on canvas 18X24  (2018)

There's a pond not too  far from where we live, that I've painted from different perspectives  over the last few years. It freezes over in winter; in the fall the trees around the bank reflect red and orange in the still wate and in the spring and summer lily pads bloom white and pink.  I applied some  of the lessons I've learned from the impressionists and create 'my" impression of the waterlilies.  This painting is one of  those works.  I began the painting "en plein air", along the banks of the pond in spring and completed it in studio a few months later,
