A beautiful pink lotus bud with green leaf and fully opened bloom in the background. I took this photo at a lovely lotus pond on a hot summer morning. The heat was harsh and stifling but the cool, tranquil lotus blossoms made it worthwhile. I added a ghosted white and pin line border. Enjoy the peace, clarity, tranquility and purity that the lotus embodies.
Art prints are available on Fine Art America. An alternative version with Japanese writing is also available. The text on the upper left hand side reads “Kiyorakana kokoro” meaning pure heart or clean mind. It is one of the “hanakotoba” or Language of Flowers attributed to the lotus. If you’d like a different proverb or saying please contact me. I will customize the text for you for free.
