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 Seventh Lotus Flower

Twenty Seventh Lotus Flower - Samantha Rochard - Mixed Media

At the time you begin to blossom 
From below the murky waters
Your next step is to learn
To spread you wings and fly.

There was no way I could do a series like this without a butterfly or dragonfly coming into a picture. These two creatures are symbols of life transformation. The butterfly's metamorphosis from a caterpillar who's only focus is eating (consume, consume, consume) - to that of a butterfly, who is able to transcend from the earth (Earthly concerns) is a common metaphor for spiritual growth.

Hopefully I shall earn my wings eventually.  :)
