I have always loved the Waterlilly paintings of Monet even before Art found me, when I was in the darkness of not being an artist or being very interested in what art can do for us as humans. Becoming an artist raised that love of his garden paintings to a deeper level of understanding but I never felt able to create a WATERLILLIES . I was afraid. Afraid of being compared and seen to be lesser and wanting in my work. Voicing these fears to my husband out loud meant those feelings were broken, the blockage somehow cleared from my heart and the very next day I began my first WATERLILLY painting which is this painting.. This is a classic example of facing those fears and doing it anyway which is what I usually do. Feeling the fear in my creation of paintings is not something I fear but I welcome the fear as it reminds me of the fear others feel in their own creativity. This is why I run my Confidence with Creativity Workshops.
“It took me time to understand my waterlilies. I had planted them for the pleasure of it; I grew them without ever thinking of painting them.” – Claude Monet
The sky was a midnight-blue, like warm, deep, blue water, and the moon seemed to lie on it like a water-lily, floating forward with an invisible current. -Willa Cather
I have also created a mini that is the second in a series of Waterlilly paintings I feel I will be creating especially as soon I will be travelling to the gardens at Giverny that was Monet’s love and inspiration. This mini is also available for sale.
