Symbolism of Painting: The idea behind the Bleeding Rose is that in life we all go through struggles. If you look closely the roses represent a path and each rose is burnt differently. The beginning of the path has more color to the roses because we begin our life with innocence. As we get older we face challenges and our experiences may cause turmoil, this is why the center part of the path is darker. Towards the end, through hope, we all can overcome what we face in life, therefore the final path is beautiful and bright again.
Mica: Aligns and centers the bodies energy. Also helps diminish anger and nervousness.
