My Vision of Peace
From ancient times the lotus has been a divine symbol for Enlightenment. The seed starts out in the mud at the bottom of a pond and keeps growing towards the light. Its unfolding petals suggest the expansion of the soul. By the time it blooms it is pure, clean and perfect. I believe that Peace is the result of growth and enlightenment.

"As a lotus flower is born in water, grows in water and rises out of water to stand above it unsoiled, so I, born in the world, raised in the world having overcome the world, live unsoiled by the world"

~ Buddha


Medium
I used pure pigments mixed in acrylic resins painted over a lime based plaster. It is on an 8 x 8, one inch thick solid MDF panel which was a recycled scrap from a cabinet company.

I love lotus. I'd love to see the original of this because of the unusual media.

The lotus is brilliant... and I get a calming energy from the background. I love that you used a recycled panel for this.
