Art Description

Painting: Acrylic on Canvas.

This painting is the second in the "Naiades" series that depicts lily pads on a lake
.
This series was inspired by the beautifully overlapping shapes of the lily pads and the reflection of a weeping willow around the lake (depicted here in red) that was intermingling with the water lilies. As in many of my paintings I enjoyed playing with the tension created by the juxtaposition of organic shapes and geometrical patterns. After all if you look at anything organic at a small enough scale, you will come to a point where it all becomes geometric ( at a cell level or a molecular level)

Naiads or Naiades in French are Greek mythological female creatures that were inhabiting bodies of fresh water. There is something whimsical about the way the lilypads are rendered in this series, reminiscent of a place you could find in a fairy tale, a place where you could see Naiades.
