Study the colour of your blood when you see it next time. The bright red when it just comes out, the darker one when it coagulates, the brownish tone when it dries. All of those reds will strengthen you and make you look good.
Be with flowers the colour of your blood.
Flowers the colour of your blood is a painting about the power of red to strengthen the blood. Red to heal red.
In the five elements theory in ancient Chinese philosophy, red is associated with fire and the energy of transformation. In ancient Western medicine similarity of form and colour were also used to heal.
The painting is a collage of veins, red blood cells and a flower, whose expansive movement reflects the energy of fire.
