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.

Seventeenth Lotus Flower

Seventeenth Lotus Flower - Samantha Rochard - Mixed Media

Seventeenth Flower says let loose,
Find your inner child, the fearless experimenter.
The part of you that looked at life
with eager wonder....
wanting to try anything and everything.

Sometimes this project has me feeling like a kid again. I remember my love for colour...clashing competing colours that lit up the whole page. I remember creating for the love of it, not caring how it came out. Isn't that what we are meant to do? There is a big weight on your shoulder when you are creating for other people, and not for yourself. So if you look at stuff here and think.." Thats a load of...." or " She calls that art??? " That's what it is to me...... so there.. *sticks out tongue*
And I shall continue shipping merrily up to 100!
