“While looking through my archive drawer recently, I found the beginnings of the Golden Lotus. It captured a feeling that I have about the present time on Earth. Although the Golden Lotus was another version of the idea that eventually became the painting The Annunciation, it holds a very different meaning. Here, the Golden Lotus is my interpretation of the descent of a new consciousness that has come to Earth.” – Michael Parkes
Several artists travel to Lake Tahoe to draw inspiration from its great beauty. It’s a heavenly location allowing visitors to experience nature at its finest. After an invigorating day spent outside, art appreciators and curious folks will be thrilled to explore the Marcus Ashley Gallery and its collection of Michael Parkes art.
While Golden Lotus was meant to be the primary outline of a different piece of art, it serves as a wholesome print on its own. Parkes sketches a gathering of women and men who welcome the arrival of consciousness. The angel depicted as the Golden Lotus is the picture of perfection with her majestic wings and halo of glorious hair. The lotus in her hand seems to be the root of her power.
Golden Lotus is a testament to the artist’s incredible approach to storytelling, as seen from his one-of-kind perspective.
