It is hard to decide what to paint. I usually scratch my head and mutter something I myself do not even understand before I decide the image and composition. This still life was easy to put together. This is all because of the accident which happened a few week ago. When I was cleaning the gutter, I fell from the top of the ladder. I am usually a very careful person. But the sudden thunder and lightning took my balance off from me. Fortunately I fell on the hibiscus bush/tree and saved from breaking any bones… just bruises and scratches. Of course unfortunate hibiscus lost many brunches and flowers. Any way I stayed in my bed the rest of the day thinking about if I were a kid this never happened… and thinking about my mother. It does not matter how old people become, sometimes we all need our mothers. So, I selected my mother’s pearl necklaces and a queen like figurine, which is always keep my desktop in order like a desk goddess, and set this still life. If my mother sees this, I am sure she will be amused and laugh at me.
