Pond Lilies in Shadow

This painting (30" x 30" oil) was completed in the studio toward the end of last year. The subject is a water feature seen at the ABQ BioPark Botanic Garden. The effect of dappled light on the lilies, mostly in shadow, was quiet and peaceful and is what inspired me to paint it. [The painting received an Award of Excellence at the Encantada 2014 Art Show in Albuquerque.]
