Lily Blooms

Here are two little lilies from the Mercer Arboretum lily pond. I went to the arboretum with 3 of my very good painter peeps and we passed the lily pond when we came in the gate, explored around for quite awhile, then came back to the lilies. The 4 of us pitched our gear around the pond, 3 of us in full blazing sun. It was very bright out and my pupils were pinpoints, I'm sure now, because my painting came out very dark. The flowers seemed to have an internal light that made me feel happy as I studied them. I know I promised koi but they didn't make it into this one either. They are a compositional concern as well as moving model and this little panel did not make room for them.
