Or can they?
One of our favorite websites, FlowerPowerDaily.com, is offering a cash prize for the best interpretation of David Hockney’s new painting, “Do remember that they can’t cancel spring.”
The 82-year-old British legend, who now lives in Normandy, was inspired to create this painting which features bright yellow daffodils in front of a grey dotted mass.
There will be three categories for our esteemed judges. A $100 prize for Most Optimistic, Most Realistic and Most Original. There will also be a separate kid’s prize.
Please send all entries to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The deadline is April 25th.
Flowers teach us about resilience and how beauty always exists if you look for it. They remind us that even in the darkest times, flowers bloom.
This period facing the coronavirus will certainly inspire priorities and perspectives. Including an appreciation for family, nature and togetherness.
It is not surprising that Hockney chose daffodils as his subject. In the language of flowers, the daffodil is not only the trumpet of spring but symbolizes rebirth, new beginnings and hope.
It is also a flower associated with health.
