Materials/Techniques: The background fabric had too wide a repeat, so I sliced it up and put it back together on a piece of Lutradur. On a whim, I glued the seams with some iridescent glue. The flower was stitched first and then painted with acrylics. I finished with some Pearl Ex for shimmer and a deeper color. The binding is painted background fabric.
Artist Statement: Nelumbo is a genus of aquatic plants with large, showy flowers resembling water lilies, commonly known as lotus. The north American lotus is native to North America and the Caribbean. I had this Asian-feel background, so searched the internet for a flower I could paint on it - and found the lotus.
Dedication: My Dad (1927-2010) motivates all my work for the AAQI.
