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.

Twenty-First Flower

Twenty First Flower - Samantha Rochard - Mixed Media



Twenty First Flower  pointed out an energy.
When the mind is focused on an issue,
It's theme begins to pour into your experience
Affirming your already-made decision.

A funny thing about the mind - it is great at finding affirmations for beliefs. Mine has started pointing out "signs" all around me. And I put signs in inverted commas because once the mind has...well "made up its mind" about a "truth;" it begins to seek confirmation from all over that it is correct in adopting this truth. 
So it was inevitable that I begin to "see" Lotus Flowers in the strangest of places. The theme kept popping up in wrought iron gates, packaging on products, stained glass windows....... I thought too, how in Classical art and architecture the aim of the creative piece was to bring the viewer / visitor to a closer connection with deity.... we really tend to neglect the spiritual part of ourselves these days.....maybe we do not listen to it enough.
