On a trip to San Diego to visit friends, I took a photo of some waterlilies in a local landscape pond. I played with the initial processing and applied a painterly effect. I then decided to apply a filter to add a touch of abstract to the piece. I purposefully kept the waterlilies in focus, without the liquefy effect. There’s a tension between the calm of the flowers and the distortion of the leaves that I like. Kind of like life!
