On hot, humid days, pink Water Lilies rise from the early morning mist like a fluid mirage. Repeated petal shapes link us from left to right. Reflections, rippling out to seek similarities, link us from top to bottom. The links remind us that all things are connected. Whatever happens to nature happens to us.
Although the flow of paint in the initial watercolor wash is loosely applied, I maintained control at the edges by glazing. The result is a continuum of links stretching outward and flowing back much like our own influences on ourselves.
