 Dream  *  Imagine  *  Create

Recently I received a a dream painting titled The Pink Lotus.  The flower floated on a blue water background, stylized rather than realistic.  The moderate sized canvas was higher than it was wide.  There was a white unpainted border around the flowers.  The canvas mounted on wooden stretcher bars hung, unframed, on a cream colored wall.  The house was minimalist with a dark mahogany wooden door to the right of the painting.   

There was a second smaller lotus above the larger one.  There were some streaks of mustard colored paint on the top petals of each lotus.  I penned a sketch.

The Pink Lotus is an oil painting, but the effect was like pastel paints on illustration board.

An image of a painting is born! 

What could the lotus mean?

This morning I opened my Facebook page to see a photo of (wait for it) a pink lotus flower!
