Artist's description:

My favorite subject to paint is the lotus flower. I love the many meanings behind this lovely image. I chose to paint this one open to depict spiritual enlightenment.

In many cultures, the lotus flower is symbolic of spiritual awakening, the afterlife, enlightenment, fertility and sensuality, purity, and health.

"A common way of understanding the Buddhist concepts of enlightenment is told through the parable of the lotus. The lotus grows in muddy water, and yet the dirt and muddy water fall off its leaves and petals, keeping it clean and pure".

Two coats of protective gloss varnish are applied to protect from UV rays and dust. The sides of the panel are painted and ready to hang.

All my paintings are one of a kind authentic original artwork and come with a signed "Certificate of Authenticity."

Thank you for visiting my gallery.
