A beautiful blog post from Tara Catalano about her new series of paintings called "Red Lotus", a fusion of painting, digital enhancements and her own positive affirmations. "In, Buddhism, the red lotus symbolizes the true nature of the heart. It is the lotus of love, compassion, passion and all other qualities of the heart. The "Red Lotus" series was created with art and inspirational messages to encourage and inspire others to live in their hearts. Oh and red is my absolute favorite color."
