From dandelion to lotus

I took a few pictures before cutting up my dandelion quilt.

I made a very quick sketch inspired by lotus pictures taken in Japan in summer 2010. As you know, the lotus flower is an important symbol in Buddhism.

With this little sketch, I just wanted to get a rough idea of the colour distribution on the new quilt.
I've posted more pictures, and more words, on my blog, here.

Oh, this is getting exciting! Can't wait to see what every one does.

I love the idea of transforming one quilt into another, along with a weed metamorphosing into a spiritually significant flower. I'm a bit stuck on ideas so I need to just make time and play in my art room to get the ideas flowing.

I'm intrigued too!
