Original pencil drawing of a Carnation, this drawing is from the 100 Days of Flowers projected completed in 2015.
In Korea, the carnation takes on a very serious symbolism. A young girl may put three carnations in her hair to tell her future. If the top flower dies first, her last years of life will be difficult. If the middle flower dies first, her youth will be difficult. And if the bottom flower should die first, then her whole life will be miserable.
This is an original drawing created with Faber Castell Polychromos coloured pencils on 250gsm Bristol artist paper.
