Pink Lotus Blossom

5" x 5" original watercolor

There are times when; as an artist, we push ourselves to
our limits. It seems our perception of our subject becomes
sharper... and we work as if the paint just comes off the
end of the brush. This painting is one of those. I had a
busy day packing and setting up at a show. It was 9pm
by the time I got home. I only had two hours to work
on my blog piece. So it was painted quickly without the
hesitation or second guessing I often go through.
Sometimes painting is like magic...

We have had several trips to Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens
in Washington DC over the years. It is where I find
fabulous inspirations for my waterlilies.
