The third in the series of 3 related monoprints, this one moved entirely away from the flower metaphor and in a different direction. The shape is not quite a heart, not quite a pink triangle, and not quite a political statement. The watery blue background intrudes on all sides, blurring the edges and the metaphor alike.

The second monoprint in this series of 3, this one looks more like its namesake with the watery background and individual petals visible. You can even still see some of the brush strokes in the print, though other areas took on a soft, watery texture when run through the printing press. This single pink lotus flower floats in the center of a square sheet of paper with an equal amount of white space on all sides.

I did a few monoprints along this vein, but I think this one was my favorite. Though named for a blue lotus, it always looked a bit more like a morning glory to me, just opening up for the day with dew dripping off the blue petals. The small 3-inch-square image floats on a larger sheet of paper, a single blossom in a pool of white.
