Spending quite a bit of time observing, sketching and painting the life cycle of a lotus over the summer, I became fascinated by the pods. One day, some visitors commented that the pods looked a bit like shower heads! What fun, I thought, and proceeded to design and paint this piece. Included in the background is the tiny plant that grows on the surface of the water in a lotus pond.
This painting is part of my Botanical Immersion series.
