Lily Pond, 8x6 Oil on Canvas, Landscape

My painting group had the challenge of painting like one of the Impressionists, so I chose to paint a lily pond, inspired by Monet. Of course, my painting is 8x6 inches; I saw one by Monet in the Louvre that was so huge that I had to back across the room to even make out what the subject was. It was a lily pond, of course. My colors are darker because I was using an actual photo of a pond as my guide, but I rather like the drama.
