Lotus Pose


Hello Everyone!

Hope you all had spectacular weekends!  Hubby spent his Father's Day taking our little girl to the movies with him....which gave me time to paint...yippee!
I was able to get this painting finished for my prize winner from the Magical Giveaway .....

Marty mentioned that her favorite flowers are Lotus Blossoms....so, I wanted to make a really pretty one that she could display in a little nook somewhere :)

This is 5 x 7 inches on Canvas Panel....first layered with paper collage.....then painted on top...

I used acrylics, ink and lots of Prismacolor pencils to give lots of depth and add wonderful subtle colors to the petals.  I rubbed the edges and a bit of the image itself with gold ink....


Hope you like it, Marty!
I'm really busy getting last minute Tea Party plans in place!  You are all invited...so please do stop by this Saturday!
I'll be having a little Giveaway then, too...heehee!

Lots of love and Lotus Dreams,
Cam
