Mortal Blooms


Studies of ephemeral blossoms, and the changes that occur as they die. I try to capture the life of a flower in bloom, knowing that both the live flower and the cut flower will soon fade and wilt, not unlike all living things. I imagine what it is like to know that I have only a short while to live in such glory, and then I realize that this is my life, too.
