Water Lilies

Water Lilies
11x14 acrylic
One summer day, my mother and I took a drive up along the coast of Maine in order to find inpsiration for some more of my nautical paintings.   While we were still inland, we started to drive by a farm when I asked her to stop the car.  It wasn't the farmhouse that caught my eye, although it was a large white house, situated prettily on top of a large hill.  It was when I looked down at the bottom of the hill, where I saw a beautiful pond, reminiscent of Monet's "Water Lilies" that I found my inspiration.  I remember wondering to myself, as I stood there enjoying the view, whether the occupant of the farm was an art appreciater, and whether he built this little bridge himself to accomodate such a lovely pond.
