Flower Head by Decarabia69 Flower Head by Decarabia69
18 inches X 24 inches, acrylics on canvas.

This is another one of the paintings I did during my absence after my mother was diagnosed with cancer. It was more a mental distraction than an honest attempt and having served its purpose, I gessoed over it to use the canvas for something else.

It's strange to think I'm showing a painting that no longer exists, and the parallels one could draw between such a painting and the life of a person is noteworthy.

It's a very interesting thing overpainting one for the reason you described. I believe it was a action from the heart, which never can be a wrong thing :)

Thank you, Rosanne! I guess the best thing about it is that I got to keep the painting (here in dA) AND I get to reuse the canvas. :)

Yes, humans too often forget of their most essential connections in this life, don't they? Thanks for your comment.

This painting lives on virtually.

Yes, and I'm actually glad I took the photo before covering it up.

Wow. Does this pot-head exist? Or is this something out of your head?
I had a friend who had a really creepy-looking pot-heat once... crazy that under certain conditions, the thing would start talking and follow you around with its eyes.
Under your own circumstances, though, I don't know if a pot-head like that would be very comforting...
I hope everything is okay with you.

No, it was just something I made up. It's sort of my take on how transient our life and our health is - notice how the flower head pot is full of life and greenery? There is a crack in the flower head signifying the beginning of the end for it. It's also staring at the transparent glass bowl full of dead twigs. I wanted this to somehow draw the parallel between life and death. The scenery out the window shows that life goes on no matter what happens indoors.
