Pink Lotus with Shells


"Pink Lotus with Rose Cup and Apple Blossom Shells," egg tempera, gold acrylic paint, rose cup, apple blossom, and pearlized umbonium shells, 4 1/2" x 4" (size including frame)

If it's just another example of gold in miniature, here is one I did with just gold acrylic paint, yet it has it's own kind of beauty.  Both because I'm currently working on a commission, and because I am trying to decide if I can part with this miniature from my personal collection, I'm putting it up as a post to see if anyone is interested in purchasing it.  

The shell craft alone took a week for me to create, and I emulated the lotus flower in shells on the top and bottom of the frame.  Please indicate your interest in purchasing this miniature via email (mona@monadianeconner.com).

Mona, this is pretty...and very spring like! It's another 73 F day here today....40's by the end of the week, but I'm loving the tease!

Mona, this is beautiful and the frame is amazing! I can only imagine how time consuming it would be to create this frame. If you are parting with it, I hope you get good $$$ for that.

Wow. Mona... You are not only a master in 2 dimensional but 3 dimensional art. With the uniqueness, beauty and time you put into this, I think it's worth at least a million. Okay, since it's a recession, don't go below $100K.
