I got here somehow but couldn’t post sooner because I had no good photo light on the day I finished and then I had to take a few days break for a bit of oral surgery. All good now!
The sparkle of light in this one just bedazzles me. I can almost feel the sun bouncing off the leaves. I also like the slow top-to-bottom color transition from yellow/red to purple/red. I can’t think of what’s not to like, and that’s a happy place to be! After some varnish and a frame, this one will be joining a few of its companions in early March at the (thankfully indoor) show, “For the Love of Art Fair” in South Bend, Indiana.
Next up, the search for a worthy successor to this lovely canvas. Can I say, “27”?? Still a long way to go to catch up with Monet’s 200-something water lily œuvre.
