Acrylic painting on masonite.

This painting was inspired by a beautiful photograph of a waterlily taken by Mikrin (Mike). I want to thank him for kindly allowing me to use his image as a basis for this painting.

Art has been my passion since I could first hold a pencil! The teachers were always telling me off for drawing all over my school books!! However life took me in other directions until about 15 years ago when I returned to my love of painting and drawing and began attending classes, and painting and drawing regularly.
I am blessed to live close to nature in the Australian ‘bush’, which gives me constant joy and inspiration to paint.
