First new work for 2012!

I am finally into my first work for 2012!  It is 24" x 36" and I
am using an amazing photograph I took of waterlilies which
I have wanted to paint for a long time.  The reflections are 
awesome and you see them here in black.  The colors are
just as amazing with lavenders and pinks and blues.  It hardly
seemed real.  I have been looking at the photo for a long time
and finally decided to try it.  
   After laying out the drawing with charcoal, I put in a wash
of the colors that are so important to me in this piece.  This 
is an oil painting by the way.
