Admittedly, I’m behind on posting some of my newer creations so, no time like the present, however, perhaps I should change the title to “Relatively New to the Gallery” How about this… “Added to the Gallery Within the Last Month or So?” It’s a mouthful but it will do. Time just gets away from you…
“The Extrovert,” shot here at the Chicago Botanical Gardens is “relatively” new to the gallery and one of my favorites. It was recently purchased in a large format print and I truly wanted to keep it for myself (Wait, I’m the artist, I suppose I can right?)
The flower is in no way Photoshopped, it was just THAT pretty. I loved how it stood out against the murkiness of the pond it was in. Fact of the day… that’s actually one of the reasons the lotus flower symbolizes perseverance against all odds… something so beautiful can grow up from the dark, dirty waters of a pond.
