Pink Lotus Oil Painting | Original Impressionism Floral
Oil on Birch + Frame options below
Original Size: 20 X 16 Inches
Approach: Alla Prima Impressionism
The original Pink Lotus Oil Painting is inspired by the miraculous nature of the lotus flower to grow in any situation.I love the concept that the brilliantly colored lotus grows itself from the muck and waste of the local swamp. But instead of focusing on the muck in this piece, I emphasized the beauty and magic in the environment. Then, through brilliant blues, pinks, oranges and subtle greens, I was able to create a really calming Lotus flower that simply pops off the board with the varied texture and paint handling. I feel, quite often, that life hands us challenges too unfair for how good we are as people. But with this oil painting, I am reminded that it is our challenges that gives us strength and compassion to do and be the most good, I love it!
The Pink Lotus | Original Oil on Board
The original Pink Lotus Oil Painting is inspired by the miraculous nature of the lotus flower to grow in any situation. I love the concept that the brilliantly colored lotus flower grows itself from the muck and waste of the muddy swamp. But instead of focusing on the muck in this piece, I emphasized the beauty and magic in the environment. Through brilliant blues, pinks, oranges and subtle greens, I was able to create a really calming Lotus piece. And the way that focus flower just pops off the board with the varied texture and paint handling, I love it!
Artist Note: I often speak to others regarding the therapeutic and deepening experience behind painting. There are just so many ways to use a creative art to reveal inner pathways in our own thinking and daily habits. If one learns to paint, they learn to see again in a new way. We are all like the lotus flower, slowly curling our petals outward to let in more light. Allow this piece to serve as reminder to always take another look, or try a different perspective. If the lotus can find its way through all that muck, then we surely can be reminded to see the beauty in life when theirs a few clouds on the horizon.
The Pink Lotus Oil was painted by artist and illustrator Andrew Gaia. In addition, he painted it in an impressionist style, utilizing the Alla Prima technique. Meaning, painted all at once, to reflect the transient nature of life, inspired by the spiritual nature of the lotus flower. Also, Andrew utilizes the wet on wet technique, balancing thick over thin layers of paint. So, the result is a multi-layered impressionist piece that perfectly captures the many layers of depth throughout the flowers and landscape.

Andrew Gaia is a Fine Artist and Illustrator from the great forest state of Pennsylvania. From an early childhood, nature and the world around him, inspired the artist to see and appreciate things in a unique way. As he developed his Artistic and Oil Painting abilities, it became clear that his way of viewing the world was different then those around him. Being able to see the entire universe in a single moment, drove so much passion and appreciation for this world, that Andrew Knew he had to share it. So, with an array of creative and visual abilities, and multiple decades of dedication and education, he paints.
Andrew captures moments, feelings, life.... in original paintings for all to draw power from. Look within the layers of paint, the expression of color, and dance of light and be teleported to a place so expansive, that time stands still. "Let my work draw out the life, love, peace, and tranquility that we all need.... and all have within us."
