Water Lilies, France
12-5/8 [32.0cm] x 10-1/8 [25.7cm]

This piece is 12-5/8 [32.0cm] x 10-1/8 [25.7cm] and was taken from a photograph we took on 14 Aug. 11
at Claude Monet's estate in Giverny, France. I attempted this piece because I was new to tree's and bushes and needed a deep immersion in that subject and although frowned upon I wanted to experiment with dyed veneer.
The interpretation from photo to veneer was extremely fascinating with my style less literal and more impressionistic. Re-do's were many. It was finished with 10 coats of lacquer sanding sealer, lightly sanded with 1500 grit then finally rubbed with Renaissance wax polish. 13 week period, Scalpel cut.
