Lily Pond

I have been wanting to paint this for quite some time. It is of our lily pond. After 8 years and the growth of surrounding trees, it got to be chore to keep clean so we filled it in. I have many wonderful photos that may well turn into paintings one day. Now, I get to enjoy our pond without all the work attached. For anyone interested, the water lilies are a tropical variety called "Tina". They were simply beautiful and very fragrant. A small start was given to me by a friend years ago and we have since shared our bounty with Water Garden Gems. It's a wonderful place to visit for those interested in water gardening.
