Acrylic, plastic item from the beach, paper, on canvas, 50 x 50 cm, 2022

I am aware that the waterlily theme must refer in some way to Monet’s great paintings in the Orangerie in Paris, and his oil sketches too, though I am not thinking of them. the shimmer of light on water, the shivery brush marks and skidding paint are most reminiscent in this one, though my palette is different. Golden lily is scratched into the gold paint at the top, and duilleag-bhaite bhuide, (yellow waterlily) down the side.
