The weather here this weekend was fabulous!  It was as if we had turned back the calendar to April instead of the screaming hot weather of June.  I was inspired!  I cleaned out and reorganized my studio and then took my easel out to my garden and painted the water lilies in my pond.  This is the first of several plein air paintings that I finished.

Les nénuphars sont des fleurs qui me fascinent. J'aime cette communion des fleurs, des feuilles et de l'eau... et toutes les petites bêtes qui y cohabitent. Un monde un peu féerique tout comme votre peinture aux nuances de couleurs extraordinaires. On a qu'une envie, celle de se taire, de regarder et d'écouter... peut-être entendrons-nous la voix d'une petite reinette ou le glouglou de l'eau...
Bravo!
gros bisous
