The lily pond.
I was, in a way, inspired by Monet. But, No…..
Monet never created nor painted quite like this. Showing the dark and the shadowed side of nature.
His lilies, lily ponds, his fields, his canvases were more Dreamscapes. Filled with the sunnier, brighter side of day.
It is admittedly, the approach I too generally follow.
That’s not the path this subject wanted to follow.
It spoke of a different message altogether.
I sighed, and went along with it.
Artists really are “co creators” for the subjects themselves, reveal how they want to be portrayed.
Silence splatters down
tear stains of scarlet
upon the quiet
little lily pads
are washed away
