Water Lilies



Water lilies set their roots in soil in bodies of water and their leaves and flowers float on the water's surface. Their ethereal beauty has long inspired artists and they were a favorite subject of the Impressionist painter, Claude Monet. Soon after, artists in the Art & Crafts Movement would apply their form to embroidered textiles, rugs and wallpapers. Today, they lend themselves to Photoshop.
