The lotus image is one I took about 12 years ago. Believe it or not, I was in a grocery store parking lot (HEB in North Austin) that had created a small pond out front and this was perched upon a lily pad floating in it. I took the image at about 5 pm in the evening, but played with the lighting and colors to create what you see below.
My success in transforming the image I initially took into the one you see above is one of the major events that led me down the path of digital art, and I will always be thankful.
This last image, my daughter's addition, is featured at the center of "my" creation.

Although this isn't where I planned on ending up with this piece, I have to admit it works on a number of levels.
