Fun with ink and the pen tool resulting in a looser style.

Thanks Katie! Right back at cha...I enjoy your paintings, too because they are always so well done! I also like that you occasionally change style and offer us admirers a little surprise. L

Amazing, Linda.

Linda,it is an amazonian native plant, names: irupé (Guarani), uapé, water hyacinth (Tupi), water hyacinth-assu, Jacana, nampé, oven-to-jaçanã, queen-of-lakes, corn and yams waterline.

The English named it Vitoria, in honor of Queen Victoria, when the German explorer in the service of the British Crown, Robert Hermann Schomburgk, took their seeds for English gardens of the palace.

The juice extracted from its roots is used by the Indians as a black dye for hair. Also used as a sacred leaf in Brazilian culture african rituals and termed as Oxibata.

Think you will like this folclore legend about this plant:

Lima, thank you so much for the information about Vitoria! I loved the folk tale and the time elapse video of the flower! I'm glad you enjoyed my painting. I seem to be attracted to water lilies as a subject because I've painted many, many of them over the years. Linda

Thank you Caesar! Actually the inspiration for this was a pond at a humble guest house on the island of St. Lucia. L

Most of my art has always been "tight" loads of detail, linework etc and it is so nice to work in a looser style, you have got this spot on, love it :).
Have fond memories of St Lucia, beautiful place and where I got married :D
