Black roses are immediately reminded for their heavy and gloom meaning as they are related to death, despair and also obsession but as the series we’re working – “Sorrow Flowers” – explores, even this grim reputation can lead to light as they also stand for the beginning of new things or major change and that by itself brings a new page, able to bring hope and confidence with it. They remind us to keep your eyes on the surface and swim without fear.
The family grows a bit more with the lines for another work in progress named “Sorrow Rose”, the second sister piece for our illustration called “Sorrow Lilies”.
Now there are three (two as work-in-progress) of a series we have started called “Sorrow Flowers”. This series tries to portray a different approach to perceived appearances regarding the meaning of certain flowers.
