This listing is for a print of an original oil/mixed media painting. The original piece, sold to a client in Denver, was created on canvas using oil, acrylic, ink and mixed media. The original has a lot of texture and contains multiple layers of color which are captured very well in the print. The image is 11" x 14" printed on larger paper with a white border for framing with a mat.
The print has been professionally ordered. The paper is of premium heavy weight luster quality which produces the most vibrant long lasting color. Somerset Velvet Giclee Prints have the authentic "look and feel" of high quality watercolor paper and are produced with Somerset Velvet paper and Epson Ultrachrome professional archival inks.
Print will be mailed in a protective envelope. It arrives packaged in a protective sleeve and stiff backing, shipped in a flat unbendy envelope or box.

Thank you for looking.
I am so fascinated with the symbolism of the lotus flower. The roots of a lotus are in the mud, the stem grows up through the water, and the heavily scented flower lies pristinely above the water, basking in the sunlight. This pattern of growth signifies the progress of the soul from the primeval mud of materialism, through the waters of experience, and into the bright sunshine of enlightenment.
Though there are other water plants that bloom above the water, it is only the lotus which, owing to the strength of its stem, regularly rises eight to twelve inches above the surface.
According to the Lalitavistara, "the spirit of the best of men is spotless, like the lotus in the muddy water which does not adhere to it."
The secret is in the allowing and the understanding and with that, the letting go.
Perhaps today, right now, is finally the time just to let it all go, and let it all be.
