Searching thru my reference photos I decided on this beautiful water lily reflected in the water. I tried to keep it lose and not over work the paint. It's too easy to ruin something with one too many brush strokes and I'm trying to teach myself to stop before that point. I can understand why Monet spent so much time painting his water lilies. They are beautiful and fleeting; you have to be an early riser to see them open.
I'm an fine art artist in Raleigh, North Carolina. I need a paintbrush in my hand to feel complete and I invite you to follow me on my art journey. Everyday brings new ideas and projects... there simply is not enough time... On December 1, 2012, I joined the community of artists who paint a painting each and every day. I haven't been able to keep up with the daily painting, but I'm trying hard to keep my paintbrushes busy.
