Lotus Flower for Bush Barn Art Gallery

Lotus Flower made for the Bush Barn Art Gallery Holiday Show

This Lotus Flower is made from a beautiful Japanese paper. I made this especially for the Holiday Show at the Bush Barn Art Gallery in Salem, Oregon. The show opens Saturday, November 5. If you happen to be in Salem between then and Christmas eve, drop in and see many lotus flowers that are exclusive to that show. I also have my calligraphic greeting cards, Eco-Holders, Inspiration Books and unique paste paper gift boxes in the show.

I love the way I was invited to participate in this show. I live over 200 miles from Salem. Catherine, the director, found my shop on Etsy and asked me if I would be interested in showing some of my art in their Holiday Show. The internet can be an amazing place to promote art.


Custom Lotus Flower

Japanese papers were used to make this lotus flower

I made this lotus flower for a friend’s mother. The flower was made with two different Japanese papers. The color of the leaves were chosen to match one of the colors in one of the papers.

This was the first time I used print papers to make the lotus flowers. I have many ideas for the future. Please come back to visit my blog as I play with many different papers.
