Chinese ink & pigment painting on High quality Raw Xuan rice paper
Inspiration: A friend sent me some Lotus flower photos from my hometown in China a couple of days ago. They had Yaji elegant gathering, playing Guqin, drinking plum wine & eating lotus petals. It reminded me that my parents used to take us to visit our local lotus lake which is 10miles long. We had picnic by the side and we children used to run around after the dragonflies.
Lotus flower has deep symbolic meaning of purity, rebirth and eternity in Chinese culture. There is a famous saying from Song dynasty scholar: 出污泥而不染 It means "Growing out of mud, the lotus blooms pure and untainted".
