So beautiful

"Died Before It" this image is very meaningful to me. First, I must say that I love dead roses! I too wrote a poem about the beauty upon a dead rose/flower... but.... this image reminds me of certain connections that I have made and how the potential "Died Before It" came to life... f/v

Ken Day replied:

Thank you very much Fania. For you can always find the deep meaning in all my work, even that which I didn't see I self.

Yes, again, Ken! I have a painting somehere titled "THERE IS BEAUTY IN THE DYING OF A FLOWER." I think there is a general overlooking of that source of aestetic appreciation, of nature's lines, shapes, subtle colors. And often we feel that way, I think that most of us have strong tendencies to avoid, to skip over, the physical changes of near-death and dying and some of the rapid onset of the physical changes -- no doubt, I think to that being a major cause of "fear" and dislike even of grave yardsmausoleums by many people in much of the world. Lots can be thought about and written on this topic. Look for it and you'll find that more and more has! Peace, etc., Bruce

Yep ... this is usually what happens to my roses. I have a brown thumb ... ha-ha I like your photos! Also, thank you for your comment on my "Tiger" drawing, I really appreciate it!

I love it!!!

It's very interesting, good job. Thank you for commenting on my painting. Suzete
