Lotus Thoughts


An offering of lotus to my family whom I terribly miss these days, scattered in so many countries across the world. I love that you can buy fresh lotus flowers at the market here in Beijing...Not only do they inspire me to paint, but they remind me of my dear papa & the beautiful lotus temple he built in India, & of my mama who created beauty every where she would go & of course would only allow fresh flowers in the house (she is pictured above on her wedding day). More paintings to come soon...
