Water Lily Pond...Lotus-in-Motion Art by 

Photographed at VanDusen Botanical Garden, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

Lotus in Motion, the Watercolour Project — an art installation by Gordon Halloran consisting of bold paintings in the shape of lily pads floating on the surface of Livingston Lake, Heather Pond, Heron Lake and the Bentall Garden Pool. Lotus In Motion, the Watercolour Project is an installation of shape and hue that finds inspiration in Impressionist Claude Monet’s Waterlilies, calving Arctic icebergs, and overlapping organic textures of landscape flora. Mr. Halloran’s lotus paintings bud from the natural world – each composition, a layering of pattern and hue resplendent with vigour. Mr. Halloran is best known locally from his wall of ice paintings entitled ICE GATE which he created for the 2010 Winter Olympics. All pieces are for sale with partial proceeds going to support the VanDusen Botanical Garden Association. Information: Caitlin Hicks 1.604.886.3634

I live in beautiful British Columbia, Canada. In the past, photography was something I did casually, using very ordinary cameras, in order to capture family photos, travel memories, etc. With my first DSLR camera, a new world of creativity opened for me. I now see the world in a whole new way through the lens of my camera. I invite you to journey with me through my collection of photos and enjoy! It is my hope that you will find in my collection of work, some art that you will purchase.
