Acrylic on Canvas – April 2016

Mei-hwa (Meihua) or plum blossom in Chinese is a flower that blooms in the midst of the transition from winter into spring.  It is seen thus as a symbol of perseverance, hope and beauty in transitory times.  In Korea it’s a popular symbol of spring and branches of them are placed in vases.  In Japan, they are seen as a symbol of early spring, and were popular before cherry blossoms became the “it” flower.  But maybe even more than that, they are seen as a protection against evil and misfortune.
