Studio Snapshot – Paper Lotus Flowers

My studio this past week has been a chair beside a hospital bed. A dear family member had a massive stroke. It’s been an emotional week, but making paper lotus flowers has proved to be calming and meditative.

Luckily I had already cut the papers for a number of paper lotus flowers. I simply put the papers, waxed linen thread, scissors, a pencil and a clipboard in a box and took it with me to the hospital.

I sat and was present while we listened to soothing music. I folded while my family member slept.
