My newest painting in the Floating Lotus series.  The lotus is associated with the 7 chakras in Buddhism – purity, an awakening of spirit, spiritual enlightment.  In Egyptian mythology, the lotus flower is a symbol of the sun, creation and rebirth. The lotus has been a recurring image in my prints and paintings over the last 20 years.
