Blooming branch as a symbol of eternity and rebirth. Trees bloomed for millions of years before us and will bloom for millions of years after us. The coral background and the bright blue of the plate contrast with each other and dominate the whole picture: hot and cold, yin and yang with white flowers combine these opposites with tenderness and affection. Thick strokes of paint create a distinctly textured surface. To enhance the texture of the flowers and their interaction with sunlight, a palette knife was used to create this painting.
