Circle of Life
"American Lotus" was created for the Quilt the Swamp exhibit at Bluebonnet Swamp Center in Baton Rouge, LA during January 2015. Michael Young was the curator. The theme this year was metamorphosis. I grew these flowers and photographed them. The piece shows the American Lotus from bud to empty seed pod. The background is my hand dyed fabric. The photos are printed on cotton and silk organza. It is mounted on stretcher bars. This piece was also juried into the Brush with Burden exhibit at the Burden Garden Center, a part of LSU Rural Life grounds in March of 2015.
