    Very rain-dance Mr. Coops!

    She is dancing and the petals or leaves are falling from on high. This is not without great symbolism to the concept of the Muse sending inspirations down to the other realm what occasionally pulls in nourishment from above, not unlike rain. . . or flakes of fish food!

    Even though she has a European look, there is also an Asian flavor, both with the lily and the coy. And that in today's cultural synthesis is a very timely way to show it. . . Like one of the Greek Muses went out for Japanese. . . or more like a Japanese artist is having Greek. . . but there has to be a ninja in there somewhere if you're going to do a proper up-to-date job. . .

    Anyway, it actually shows grace and beneficence, and a really cool color working with those greens. As if to say, "Little fish, if you miss how cool this inspiration is you're blind! Now eat your larvae and get on with your painting, mate!" Three cheers for the Muses that really shout to us.

    Fantastic. <--- cheers x3

    Edit: Is that a waterlily or a lotus and is there a difference? I looked up pics of both on Google and they look the exact same. I'm so botanically challenged.
