While looking for a photo of a #lilyflower or #waterlily for my #zeninspired series of paintings, I found a photo and fell in love with it and painted a similar composition. (Scroll right to see the entire painting.) Perhaps, it was the reflection in the water that mesmerized me. The symbolism of the lily can be traced back to antiquity and plays a significant role in various cultures across the globe. From beauty to enlightenment, they represent emotions and ideas. I have sold a few prints, but the #originalpainting is still available (after November 30th), please email or comment. #Eggtempera on wood, 15 x 20 inch.
