The Lily Pond

Watercolor Painting by Brian Bailey

Brian Bailey, The Lily Pond, Watercolor, 7.25″ x 5.25″, © 2016

I started this painting on a walk through Golden Gate Park when I came across a pond that I had never noticed before.  I’ve taken frequent walks through the park over the last 2 years and had walked around the left and to the right without seeing that just over the crest of a small hill there was a quiet and murky pond.  Being able to spend time in the park is so valuable to me.  It’s the place where I flesh out many of my thoughts about life while walking or stopping to watch and meditate.  And this small painting is a memory of that time watching and thinking below the pine and cypress trees.
