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.

Thirty Ninth Lotus Flower

Thirty Ninth Lotus Flower - Samantha Rochard - Mixed media. 
Seeking purity?
Seeking Peace?
Seeking Peace of mind?

The White Lotus Flower is the Buddhist symbol of purity. And the purity that I seek is really purity of mind. But I feel so harassed these days, so cluttered and disorganized. I feel like nothing I need is here. It is scary, that after I worked hard to pull my mind out of the mental mud, I find myself being sucked back in. I need space, quiet, solitude and so many other things which cannot be provided with a sweep of the brush or pencil.
