The mute swan is so lovely. I always think of the lotus flower when I paint a mute swan. Formidable fighter by the way…..deceptive outside package.


  1. It’s very beautiful. What makes you think of the lotus? They combine perfectly in the painting; but I’m just curious.

    • The lotus is an esoteric, mystical flower. It grows out of a muddy bottom in a pond or lake. This is where a swan might be seen also. Both are mysterious and very elegant. I sometimes include a lotus in a painting. ♥ gretchen

  2. Beautiful curve of neck and I get the feeling she is looking at me. Really stunning composition.
