Saturday Morning

Pond Lily, 12 x 12

Yesterday morning, members of Plein Air Austin met at a local park expecting to paint at a pond with great morning reflections. But when we got there, it was covered with small algae plant forms (aka pond scum). In the midst of the algae, one small group of lily pads was thriving with beautiful lotus flowers. This lily was fully open, bathing in the sunlight.

Very nice, I hope the be able one of these days to have a similar feel . I am fighting my natural tendency to be detailed.

Hi Laurel,

I'm having the hardest time leaving comments so I hope this one gets
to you. It's my third try.

Love the water lily, and I'm not surprised that you can find the
beauty in a bad situation. You
are just so good.

Barbara
