Jewels of Hush Lake
Not For Sale
A spot of bright colour always catches my eye while traveling the highways. In June, in the centre of British Columbia the wild pond lilies (Nuphar polysepalum) are at their finest. This little lake is actually adjacent to a rest stop along Highway 97 North, called Hush Lake. It is just a few miles north of Quesnel, BC, on the west side of the highway. There's a short road off the highway and it features a shaded pull out, picnic tables, restrooms and a trail to the lake. There's actually a very nice dock where people sometimes fish if the lily pads aren't overgrown. Another "jewel" is that sometimes there are multitudes of various types of dragonflies hovering all around the water's edge. This painting brings me back to my very first oil painting, which was of a water lily and lily pads.

Every day I experience something in nature that invokes a response: a need to create and express an instance in time. I love the challenge of creating texture, reflection, and light. I'm grateful to live where this is evident in abundance each day.
