Amazonian Lily Pond

First post of 2014!  Ringing in the new year with an old image (painted from a photo) and one I've been wanting to paint for quite a while.  The pic/reference is from a trip I took to Peru back in 2001.  It's a 6' x 6" painted in oil on linen panel.  I was looking at pics from that trip, a lot of possibilities for other paintings. Back then I had a small Elph camera but it wasn't digital.  Managed to take a few hundred pics from that trip.  Funny, on my few trips to Colombia these last few years I've taken thousands of pictures with my digital camera, not having to worry about how many pics I can take because I'm not limited to a 36 exposure roll of 35mm film.  Anyway, hopefully more paintings will result from that trip.
