The inspiration for these painting came from visiting botanical gardens with my children when they were young. There were 2 lakes filled with lotus flowers and I took hundreds of photos at different times of the day. I was amazed that the leaves, pods and flowers they follow the sun.
Lotus flowers represent how I want my life to be, happy, joyous and always growing. The lotus flower unfolds and opens up to beauty, purity and peace.
"The world is but a canvas to the imagination."
