Lotus Plant Drawing showing all parts (Roots, Flower, Seed-pod, and Leaves) with a visiting Dragonfly, by Dutch nature artist Paula Kuitenbrouwer.

Paula: 'For my first drawing, ‘Lotus Plant’, I researched and focused on all the interconnecting parts of the plant. Most drawings and paintings of the lotus concentrate on the flower itself; the next part, the stem, is submerged and thus often merely hinted at. And the roots, although many of us will be familiar with them as edible parts of the plant, are rarely depicted in art, since they grow deep in the muddy bed of the pond. For a Buddhist, this concept of living in three mediums – mud, water, air – signifies a progression. The soul journeys from the muddiness of materialism, through the water-world in which we live and experience our daily, day-to-day lives, and thence beyond, to enlightenment in the ethereal world of light and air. That these parts are all connected, roots to stem, stem to flower, is reflected in my drawing'.

Size of drawing is 31-41 cm or 12-16 inches; frame it with a lovely classical, vintage or modern DYI standard sized or professional frame.
