Another Love of mine is water lilies. This is panel 2 of a diptych. This diptych was inspired by the Lotus flowers on Paynes Prairie in Gainesville, Fl. The flowers were not accessible on the prairie for photos so I looked around Gainesville for others so that I could get some good reference photos. I found the flowers at a retention pond by one of our Post Offices and in a small pond on Interstate 75 between Gainesville exits! The Lotus flower is regarded in many different cultures, especially in eastern religions, as a symbol of purity, enlightenment, self-regeneration and rebirth. It characteristics are a perfect analogy for the human condition: even when its roots are in the dirtiest waters, the Lotus produces the most beautiful flower.
Enjoy! ❤️ Sending Love ❤️
