did you know that pomegranates are symbols of abundance? they are! so it's only fitting that these absolutely beautiful paintings by karen benson feature the lovely fruit. and did you know that oranges symbolize peace in chinese tradition? yes, it's true. i'm not sure if karen intended these symbols in her paintings, but i imagine that she did.... and if not, the symbolism is the first thing that came to my mind when i looked at these beauties.
these paintings just feel peaceful and abundant to me. i could look at them for hours. please check out karen's website and blog to see more!
*thank you, karen, for sharing your gorgeous work with us!*
