This week's theme: Flower of the Month

The most popular exhibit at EBSQ is unquestionably Flower of the Month. Every month since November 2004 there has been a different botanical subject found on the EBSQ Exhibits page. This week EBSQ's Art of the Day features some of your favorite entries from the January-July 2011 Flower of the Month exhibits.

Art: Bonsai! by Artist Kris Jean

I wanted to create something a little different and surreal. To me it resembles a bonsai in a far off land or another planet and it's made of a fluffy pink supstance almost like cotton candy. Maybe it resides in the corner of someone's mind - the perfect place for an ant to read a book. A yet to be discovered island in the middle of nowhere. The possiblities are endless.  It's playful and colorful, I like that.

Painted using a couple of  refrence photos and professional grade acrylics. I intially was going to use the 'grid system' but once I started it just flowed off my pencil then my brush. I also was going to have it in a pot, but felt it didn't need to be contained - just free. You can see WIP progress on my blog.
