100 Lotus Flowers

2009: 100 Lotus Flowers taking me through a transition in my life. Each flower is a message which brings me closer to the goal. I try to come to terms with myself, and be myself. What messages do the flowers hold?
2013: What is the goal? I no longer know what it is, except for reaching the 100. But the 100 was not supposed to be the goal itself, but rather help reach the.....the.....I am lost, honestly lost. Everything I was striving for has diminished in importance. I do not know what to strive for. I think striving for anything now is pointless....but I will keep drawing and painting.
2014: A renewed sense of purpose, things seem to be falling into place.


100 Lotus Flowers, 100 points of healing.

Eleventh Lotus Flower

Eleventh Lotus Flower - Samantha Rochard - Mixed Media
Eleventh Lotus Flower says that,
In seeking New Direction,
We sometimes must go back to a point of happiness.
Then we branch out in a different direction.

......which is what I did with this one. The last time I created with free-flowing ease...I mean really with no thought of finishing in mind was back in 1993 or so. At that time, there was a youth art exhibit organised by some big company; I cannot remember who. I do remember showing a host of black and white drawings, most of which were like the flowers depicted inside the petals here, and some crosses...lots of crosses. I had given each visitor who came to my corner, a black paper rose.
I really felt alive then......
