Blooming, Decay and New Beginning by 

I wanted to paint three stages in the lifetime of a plant or flower….so, here you can see a big flower which begins already to curl up a little bit, you can find the old flower that is gone almost and in front of that you can see the new flower buds coming to life.

Acrylics on panel, 30×40 cm or 12×16 inches, 2007
