On Flowers

“ The reason I paint flowers is that I see them fading.

“This reminds me of the eternally renewed, the springtime, all of that, because I feel death and disaster lurk right behind them.”   *

  1. What a beautiful bouquet.
    When I think of flowers, I remember the importance of enjoying them while they’re here. Flowers are truly an important reminder of the short lives we all lead. How crucial it is to love one another, and cherish our own lives before we also wither.
