As I painted this picture it occurred to me that it would be wonderful to live a few moments of life as a Water Lily. Water Lilies float freely on the surface of the water, having no worries, while soaking up sun. Their gorgeous color captures my eye and the depth and beauty of their leaves is breathtaking. The flowers are easily recognizable and elegant to view. They provide a resting spot for tiny frogs. Water Lilies are a perfect subject for watercolor painting; something Monet figured out long before I did!
Bravo to Water Lilies!
And to Nancy K, my friend who took this photo on her morning walk.
