I just finished this painting today. I adore water lilies. Monet is one of my favorite artists and his waterlilies are what captured me. They take me to a peaceful place. "Lilies 1" Acrylic on stretched canvas 20" x 16"
When I make art for my dad I'm always painting ships. I call this painting "Midnight Sail". There are no words to describe the beauty of the sea. I am drawn to the sea by a powerful tug in my heart. I long for the sea as though it were heaven itself. In the winter months I find myself desperate for the comfort that water brings me and I often paint the places I want to be. Some of my most pleasant memories I have with my father have been by a water's edge.
