August - Lotus

Lotus (August). I was initially very surprised to hear that a lot of people don't automatically associate lotus flowers with Asia. I always assumed that lotus flowers, which are symbolically represented in a lot of Buddhist artworks, are uniquely Asian (South Asian included). But guess not, oh well.. and the girl is Asian.

I grew up in a small city in China. The downtown area is surrounded by a lake. And by mid July, the lake is completely covered with lotus flowers and lotus leaves. I remember taking evening strolls with my dad around the lake and watching dragonflies (before capturing them and killing them). Ah, childhood memories.

Here are the WIPs.

And the final version
