Lotus 1

Graphite
8×13.5″
$1415 framed (includes shipping & handling)
Linda came upon this lotus plant at the Chicago Botanic Gardens. The platter-sized leaves, the symmetry of the petals, the delightful shape of the pods…all were incredibly rewarding to capture with her pencil.

Lotus 3

This is the very same lotus blossom as in Lotus 1 but the challenge was completely different. This time it was essential for Linda to capture the three-dimensionality of the flower: The petals had to look like they were actually curling off the paper.

The raindrops from a brief summer shower added unexpected interest to this lotus blossom, which was in the aquatic garden at the Chicago Botanic Gardens.

Pears

Peonies

Linda arranged these peonies from her garden in one of her favorite vases.  Its globe shape is echoed in the plump blossoms.
