A lotus is symbol of purity, rising from the mud and muck at the bottom of a pond to spread untainted and beautiful petals to the world above. And the carp who swim endlessly upstream to attain the perfection of transformation into a dragon.

I love this. Your work reminds me of how water acts when a pigment of some sort is added. Even tho the paint is dry it feels as tho the image is still moving.

Hello! I'm making a series of art videos about flowers, and I was wondering if I could include this piece in one of my videos. It would be set to an original classical-style composition (by me) about this flower. I'll be sure to credit you and link to your page if you say yes. Here's a link to see the kind of music it is: [link]
