Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

The Flower

The flower, very dry and scentless,
I see in the forgotten book;
And now, with the strangest fancies,
Is filled my soul’s every nook.

Where and in which spring was it grown?
And how long? By whom was cut?
By a hand known or unknown?
And why was put this page behind?

To the recall of the love-talking,
Or separation forced by fate,
Or quiet and alone walking
In the fields’ silence and woods’ shade?

Is he alive? And his sweet lady?
And where is now their little nook?
Or maybe they had both faded,
Like this strange flower in this book?

Aleksandr Pushkin, 1828 (Translated by Yevgeny Bonver)

This painting was created specifically for the "Muted Competition" on Artfinder. The muted tones of this watercolour convey the discreet and quiet beauty of autumn and melancholy. The colour range from the Muted Collection are perfect for this.

Size: 12 x 8 inches. (30 x 21 cm)

This painting was hand-painted, using professional Winsor&Newton watercolors and 300g/m2 watercolor paper.

I sign this original artwork.
