I started making my lotus flowers red with green leaves. Well, with Valentine’s Day coming up it seemed like a good idea. Now I’m playing with two tone flowers. I went out and bought a dozen reams of different colors of papers and am having so much fun trying different combinations of colors. I know that my goal is to make a lotus flower a day, but most days I can’t stop at just one. The peace and serenity I feel when making them is so powerful. I hope the recipients of these lotus flowers feel it too.
Last week I started selling my lotus flowers in my studio and in the gallery at the Art Center. The first one I sold is being sent to Thailand as a gift, one was custom made for a friend’s mother, and one will be Valentine gift. I love the fact that these lotus flowers are going to loving homes and will be treasured.
