"Lily Pool" (Alfred Caldwell Lily Pool, Chicago)

This might be my new favorite spot to paint. My concern with this piece is that because of my compositional choice, it became too abstract to understand that I painted the water complete with reflections, lily pads and a bit of the foliage edging the pond. I really responded to the newly beginning fall colors.
6"x12"
Oil ($175.)

No way, not too abstract!!! Beautiful, suggestive.
Why don't you do a series, some more abstract, some less?

This is breathtaking! I'm happy Karen posted a link to her painting partner's work. Very, very nice.
