It’s that time of year when I fall in love with the lilies again – especially the yellow bullheads. They are small, but they shout their presence. As I worked on this pondscape, fitting the lilies into the composition, I realized that something about their position reminded me of the comos series of paintings I did years ago. The dots of yellow reminded me of stars in their constellations. Unlike the stars, these points of bright yellow will be gone soon. They will not assist navigation. But in my imagination I will remain in their orbit and they will guide my muse. Enjoy. Details below.
