I’ve always loved mandalas: the symmetry, the colors, the idea that they represent transforming suffering into joy, and that they are supposed to be destroyed to underscore the impermanence of life. Nothing is forever. I learned about them by watching Tibetan monks years ago create a sand mandala on the Princeton University campus. After many, many hours of patient and painstaking work, they blew it all away.

 

Flower art is similar; it takes such a long time and requires being very careful and fussy, yet, at the end, the colors fade over time. I believe color evolution is part of the art form and is lovely in its aging. It looks different year after year. We all fade, no? But we are still beautiful.
