This is another painting that I wanted to be one thing but ended up being another. On the right side there was a face looking at the lotus flower but I painted over it because it ended up competing with the bloom and I did not want that. The shimmer is from a little bit of ground glass that I mixed in with the white before I made the different hues of blue and green for the woven background. I toned it down and it does not reflect like Christmas wrapping any more but I like the photographic image of this painting.
