"Don't Forget to
Water the Cherry Tree"
Symbolism for sure in this one. This is the premise that crossed my mind
as I painted it...someone has left, we'll assume it was a man. The lady
left alone is not able to leave her environment so she picks the daisies
and recites "he loves me, he loves me not". Yet the only thing
on the man's mind is "make sure you water the cherry tree as I love
the fruit and I do not want it to die". What a cad. The checkered
water symbolizes the chess game of love. The crack in the globe (which you
cannot see) symbolizes the strain the relationship is already under. The
crystals were stuck in my mind as my son had just gotten a "Grow your
own crystals" set. I thought that maybe this one could be
fantastic art but the use of symbolism seems to put it in a surrealism
