Here is my first illustration for my Flower Series titled Lotus.

Lotus 蓮花/荷花  is known as the gentleman’s flower as it grows out from the mud,pure and unstained.  It is also one of the top ten most famous flower species( Plum blossom 梅花, peony 牡丹, Chrysanthemum 菊花, Orchid 蘭花, China rose 月季, Camellia 茶花, Azaleas 杜鵑花, Osmanthus 桂花, and Narcissus 水仙)  in Chinese culture. I love Lotus’s purity and elegant shapes. This is yet another favorite flowers of mine.

The symbolic meaning of lotus  is purity of the heart and mind and represents long life,humility,honor ,tranquility, and faithfulness.

May this illustration bring you a purity of the heart,faithfulness,tranquility and again long life!!

Here is my Second-Chrysanthemum菊花 and Third-Peony 牡丹 illustration for this Flower series that I have introduced on my blog previously.

Happy 2014 Chinese New Year to you all!
