Aqua Lilly

Aqua Lily. Acrylics on canvas.
Between August and December 2005 I completed my first series of 12 paintings on water lily.

The water lily, whose scientific name is Nymphaeaceae, is one of the world’s most beautiful and recognizable plants. The scientific name, Nympaeceae, is taken from the Greek word nymph. Nymphs were female sprites that lived in springs or other bodies of water. The name “Nympaeceae” fits the water lily perfectly because the lily is only found in bodies of water as well.
