a flower’s life-span is usually a short year…. from seed to fertilization to sprout to bud to colorful flower to falling petals to wilting…. there is so much….. and so much color and many shades of each….
in the act of reproducing a few older images, I began thinking particularly of natural, non synthetic color…. painting or imagining the flowers by understanding their color….how they grow or decompose or cycle through shades of color….
so I tried painting w. a few natural dyes in the mix…. the effect is both complicated and wonderful…. often the ink or paint that colors the paper changes noticeably over time (as the painting is being completed) w. absorption and dryness (oxygenation)…. giving a lasting impression of inexactitude of nature….
