|Blushing Lily 6x6|
This is the third of the initial 6 x 6 inch paintings of waterlilies and it may be my favorite one yet. The colors are full on and as intense as the hot Texas sun. We've been hitting over one hundred degrees here for several days and the pink color seem to match the intensity of the heat. I think these tight little compositions would translate well on larger canvases. For now, I'm good with focusing on these single blooms as I can then start to loosen up and attempt similar arrangements with perhaps more impressionistic brushwork.
