The Lilly Pond
I am sure one or two people have seen this painting before but it was way at the begining of my blogging.
Lillies and Lotus hold a special place in eastern philosophy. They are used so often to give living examples of how it is possible to raise oneself from troubles or difficult times up into the light of a new day.
This is a kind of theme that I cling to and keep returning to so it was not surprise to me that I at one stage would want to paint such plants.
This was my first and only attempt. I thought at the time I was best to leave this topic to the greats who can do it so much better than I ever could.
This painting is now in the USA it was surprisingly purchased from me to be given as a gift to another. I often look at it and wonder if I should try again? Or have I been wise to leave it alone?
Painted on a large canvas using acrylic paint. One of my very very early ventures into acrylic.
