Yesterday was a day for meditation. First up: Gathering the raw materials (see image at bottom). With several bunches of alstroemeria (“Peruvian Lilies”), I harvested the petals from the blossoms, taking care to separate the flatter, outer petals from the thinner and narrower inner petals. These inner petals often have an appearance that reminds me of tiger stripes!
With the petals gathered, I next sat down at the light box for a long and calming interlude of careful petal placement.
