Los Angeles, CA January 2022 – California photographic artist, Andrew Lawrence, has achieved an artistic milestone. He has created his 1,000th work of art.
The work is entitled, “Purple Protea”.
In the original image the flower was red, the artist turned it purple, and turned the other flowers blue, for artistic effect.
Pronounced (pro tee uh) the protea is the national flower of South Africa.
“Among the oldest families of flowers on earth, dating back 300 million years, Greek legend tells us that protea were named after Proteus, the son of Poseidon With its mythological associations to change and transformation, it’s not surprising that in the language of flowers, protea symbolizes diversity and courage.” – Teleflora
The Purple Protea is the artist’s 1,000th fine art photo. This artistic milestone took him more than 2 years. He created an average of more than 1 work of art a day, artistically photographing objects in and around Los Angeles, California.

In 2019, and during the pandemic, he turned to creating cool colorful fine art photographs of nature; flowers and plants, sky, trees as well as abstract art.

His artistic endeavor has been very beneficial. According to Andrew, “Fine art photography kept me sane and healthy for 2 years during the Covid pandemic. I went out every day, drove/walked around L.A. taking pictures, then spent time creatively editing the images. This allowed me to avoid close contact with indoor and outdoor groups of possibly contagious people, and I got some excellent exercise walking. I did this every day. I still do it.”
His favorite art quote is, “A picture is worth a thousand words.”
