Here is “Lotus Study 4.”
This painting, oil colors and resin on a wood panel, features paint dripping down in the background.
The resin coating gives this art rich colors, and beautiful reflections in the glassy surface.
The Lotus series explores the bold simplicity and deep symbolism of lotus flowers. Lotus flowers symbolize many things, including divine beauty, purity, love (romantic & non), faithfulness, and expansion of the soul. Buddhist and Hindu art often features them.
The lotus is a metaphor for the light of the human soul transcending the darkness that surrounds it. It grows out of a mucky, scummy, vile swamp but is pure, clean and vibrant, perfectly symmetrical, delicate and fragrant.
The colors pop as light plays across the surface when this painting is in sunlight, and the colors become deeper and darker when in shadow.
Seeing this one in person is much better, as the reflections constantly shift and change as you walk past it and your point of view changes!
