Victoria Giant Waterlilies

The reflections and ripples in the water around these giant waterlilies created a puzzle like background.  The deep dark blues of the water set off the pale greens and mauves of the lily pads. This painting was juried into the National Watercolor Society 88th Annual Exhibition in 2008.  It was also selected for the 1 year traveling show and won a major award.
