"Waterlily Dreams" (oil on stretched canvas; 24" x 18") sold

"Waterlily Dreams"
"Where Dragonflies Play" (oil, 12" x 9")

At the request of a client, I did a much larger version of the same painting.  When a painting is blown up, I often feel that something gets lost in the translation.  The charm and suggestiveness of a small painting become sacrificed in favor of details.  I was determined that it should not happen with this commission work.  I came up with the title first and stuck to it, keeping it "dreamy" and "soft-edged."  What do you think of the new painting?
