Reflections of Lotus

Sometime around June or July, I went to Echo Park and painted lotuses.  The Echo Park Lake is home to LA's best and most famous lotuses.  When there is a lotus festival, it is there.  I'm a little disappointed in the painting, probably because I've spent years thinking about painting lotuses.  The delicate pink tips of the petals are nice though.


  1. looks solid to me. I favor the leaf emerging from the left side. it's a striking piece. now I'm wondering how you paint in 100 degree weather if there isn't any shade.

  2. well i think it's beautiful - i especially like the more closed one on the left.
