Day 4 — Lotus from Mermet Lake

I’m back on track, having finished today’s painting on time to get it photographed and posted before the end of the day. Dave and I went on a drive a couple weeks ago on his day off to spend the afternoon at Mermet Lake in southern Illinois. It’s about an hour’s drive from Paducah and is just a fantastic natural area with loads of water fowl and wild life. Right now the water lilies, or lotus, are in full bloom all over the lake. They sit tall above the water like dancing ladies. So I couldn’t resist painting a few.
