Lilies at Retreat

created on site with acrylic

I created this painting one afternoon during my 2 week stay at a retreat house in Michigan.  The house overlooked a beautiful lake.  I was very taken with a patch of lily pads that were frequented by 3 very territorial swans.  I was, of course, channeling Monet and the idea of Impressionist painting.  I wanted to capture the moment and the feeling in the moment including a sense of movement and the idea of the lilies as floating entities.  This painting has additional personal value to me as it marks a spiritual and artistic awakening.
