As every flower fades and as all youth
Departs, so life at every stage,
So every virtue, so our grasp of truth,
Blooms in its day and may not last forever.
Since life may summon us at every age
Be ready, heart, for parting, new endeavour,
Be ready bravely and without remorse
To find new light that old ties cannot give.
In all beginnings dwells a magic force
For guarding us and helping us to live. […]”
― Hermann Hesse, The Glass Bead Game
In this little painting, I tried to capture the delicacy of the orchid petals, the soft shifts in colour, the rhythm of the flowers on the stem, like a dance of light, some flowers fading some new waiting to burst out with life.
