|Bouquet for Life|
The centerpiece in this collage is actually a tulip that I disassembled and then reassembled to look more like a flame, which I intend to mean essence. For me, that essence, that thing I need to keep burning, is my creativity.
This collage portrays summer and sensuality. I was primarily looking for patterns and colors of the natural world when life is warm and easy.
I titled this collage "Lotus Opening" without knowing that the opening of a lotus represents spiritual awakening. I Googled "lotus opening" and found this out. There is something always working behind the scenes of art, and it's when you become aware and curious that you see what it is.
I suppose if I am living my life correctly, I am always in the throes of a spiritual awakening.
