Narcissus by the Lynher

I painted this image of the upper Lynher river in early spring, and then decided to add narcissus poeticus, or the pheasant’s eye narcissus, which has by far my favorite of all the many daffodil / narcissus flowers, and is also one of the more ancient varieties.  I painted the flower, and then decided to add the  reflected face of Narcissus, from the ancient story about the young man who fell in love with his own reflection and was transformed into a flower.
