The quote today talks about reflection in relation to wisdom, and I can see the importance of that in our daily living.
But it was the reflections in this photo that was so inspiring to me and pulled me in to paint this water lily.
With the sun shining from the back it created the most interesting shapes in the water. And the colors in the petals were so translucent.
As I’m in the process of painting it becomes a time of reflection for me.
