Piece description from the artist
This piece is a part of the Blooming Collection. It encompasses the lotus flower signifying peace and tranquility. It is incredibly important to have our home like a sanctuary to unwind and recharge. This painting enhances the feeling of peace. I used mixed media to create a playful layering with the lotus flowers.
