Floral designs

While cleaning up my closet last week, I found this wooden shape purchased from our local dollar store long back. So as usual imagination took its flight and I was ready to draw with my pencil. After picking and rejecting few ideas, I finally settled for some floral pattern …which I used to draw in my school days. Drawing and colouring a design using lotus flower petals and leaves inside a geometrical shape…...was usually the assignment we get by our Art teacher at school. So I thought why not…...I sharpened the pencil draw some lotus and leaves painted it with the colour of my choice........Voila!!! and to my surprise got a Good Job sticker from my daughter :-)

After completing the floral design I was just wondering, what a difference colors can make, be it a painting on a piece of wood or human life...

After finishing the design I cut the shape and glued it to my daughter's old Frisbee :-)
