Phyllis Swonk: Water Lilies on the St. Lawrence River, Canada

Water Lilies on the St. Lawrence River, Canada

Phyllis Swonk (B.S.Des.1962)

Stopping along the shore of the St. Lawrence River on our way home from Maine through Canada, we took a tour of the river and stopped just before the little tourist town we cruised from. I took several shots of the flowers in the water along the bank, and caught this one which is one of my personal favorites. It is so lush looking. Nature is such an inspiration for me, especially flowers and little creatures.

This work is featured as part of Future Former: An Exhibition of Alumni Work.
