Cycles of Life and Death- two sides of the same coin
My painting, a dead wasp amidst the joyous yellows and purples of fallen jacaranda flowers, reflects the wonder I feel on observing nature and the world around me – the joy of the immensity and yet the minuteness of Life!
A poem by friend Terry Dawson, who has the perfect words that encapsulate my painting perfectly!
“Amid the purples and the mauves
That please our human eyes
A little life that’s run its course
First crumples then it dies.”
