This Honeysuckle shows some damaged leaves. It shows us beauty and impermanence. By realising our short and limited life-span we feel a need to be influenced by people that inspire us and to inspire and influence others. We feel an urge to give sense to our life and we make art as a way of leaving a legacy. It is obvious that we need to have an end in mind. Without it we would be too relaxed and too indifferent. So, what about 'influence'? Why do I draw? Why do I like to create something beautiful? Is it my saying that life is beautiful? Or that by adding a tiny piece of beauty I haven't lived in vain? Or is it a way of saying 'Thank you' for all the beautiful moments in my life? Most likely."
