The last time I painted (other than on Photoshop) is the summer of 2008 while living at Choeng Mon Beach on the Island of Samui in Thailand. This is one of those paintings, inspired by watching the many types and stages with lotus blossoms. The only painting I brought back to the States when I returned in October that year.

The original is 50 cm x 50 cm and was pinned to our wall in the stairwell when I first loaded this to RB. I took it off its stretchers to pack it for the flight. It has a few creases but somehow they seem to enhance it where we have it hung. I prefer it on the diagonal and hang it that way. AND now in 2014 it hangs in our hotel room where we live on Choeng Mon Beach on the Island of Samui in Thailand after we returned in 2012. ;-)))

A persona who has apparently lived a relatively long, varied and eclectic life. My Red Bubble portfolios reflect my seeming persona… and IF there’s any veracity to these reflections then some sense of HUMOUR and enjoyment should be PRESENT!
‘Ola!’ ;~}}}

    Nice and interesting painting, love the texture and the color:)

  • The colors, textures and patterns all came from the rich tropical plant and bug life that enthralls me when I’m in Thailand. The butterfly is because of a profusion of that variety that fluttered around me while I was working on this piece. There’s an inch worm (didn’t show up with spotted detail in the photo translation) that was inspired by a variety that was dropping down by threads from the trees above at that time of year. They had wonderful spots along their bodies. The center is inspired by the center of a variety of lotus blossom after the pedals fall off.
    Thanks for taking time to comment! ; – )))

    This is so wonderful James!! It perfectly expresses the layers of soul & spirt, and it’s unfolding like a flower. The colours too are perfetc for it – God is the colour of Spirit (higher than the soul) and violet is the ray of ceremonial magic and miracles

  • You always have such a gracious way to fold your compliments into a spiritual experience in their own right. xoxo

    Great job here!!!! So 3D!!!

  • Oh, if you could see original… or if a camera could capture the effects of acrylic transference paints… then you’d see even more dimensions of this work… like the dimension of movement as the lighting conditions and viewing angles change. Anyway, thanks for seeing it as it is here and commenting ; – )))))))))
