Oh, there it was… my next subject, a beautiful potted begonia plant begging to be painted. My studio partner had brought it for his class to arrange on a small table but he had left it on the floor. I liked the unusual concept of looking down on it like a map.
So I started painting on the nearest watercolor paper without much thought about the placement on the rectangle. The color was working well, so I laid another paper next to it so as to include the other objects on the floor. The long stems of the lotus pods helped establish the floor concept.
This became a diptych. The two paintings could be framed separately, each signed by the artist, and hung side by side, or framed together as shown. Together they make a unique design.

We could not fathom being pilgrims on earth if the precious words from the Bible did not instruct us to view life differently. As an artist, I revel in things I can see, hear, smell, taste and touch. Yet the divine words describe a more potent reality–one that defies our senses. “Look in faith!” they urge us. So let us press on to a world framed by God’s promises. Then we will glimpse eternity, the brevity of our lives and the urgency of our destinies.

True to its name, "Moon Flower" (Jimson weed) blossoms only open in the middle of the night. With flash lights and cameras, we got images of the full bloom in progress, which lasted till the sun touched its petals next morning. The painting depicts the blooming process life size from left to right…dusk to dawn.
