This painting is the third in a group of four 16×16” canvases, each featuring a single bloom among the lily pads.  With the focus being on the large bloom, the leaves lose their round forms and become an abstract green background.

I work in a series because it provides a framework for experimentation.  As I become familiar with the shapes of the subject, I can stretch my imagination about technique and composition.  In this series, I’m using a limited palette of paints and matching canvas sizes.   I challenge myself to vary the composition and colors in each one while maintaining enough consistency that they can be displayed together as a group.
