After a long hike up the mountain in the Canadian Rockies it was very relaxing to soak my feet in a beautiful lake.

“To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven.” Ecclesiastes 3:1

In recent years, I used my paintings to speak about the glooms and dooms around the world. Despite the despondency and challenges part of life, there is a rosy side of life as well. In this painting “The Rosy Seasons of Life” I chose an optimistic look of life to celebrate rosy side of life Greatly influenced by the works of Renaissance’s artist Giuseppe Arcimboldi, the artist that used fruits to paint portrait of his subjects like “VERTUMNUS” – the portrait of Emperor Rudolph II in the year 1590, I used Roses and Thorns to paint what I called “the fact of life”. I interpreted the successes and failures in everyone’s life to be the “Roses and Thorns” of life. In celebrating the Rosy Seasons of life with this painting, I wrote the poem below.

It is a Wonderful World after all. After all the tilling and toiling of the working hours. It is a wonderful world after all. After the gloomy and dreary of the wintertime. It is a wonderful world after all. The sun is shining; the nightingales are singing, and human beings are dancing. It is a wonderful world after all. The fields are green, and the flowers are blooming. It is a wonderful world after all. When humans take a break from all the wars, worries and woes. and be at peace with himself and enjoy the bounties of the Lord. It is not a perfect world after all; yes! It is a wonderful world. These are the thoughts that influenced this painting.
