During the peak of the hot summer season, flowering cannas blaze brightly in vivid red, orange and yellow hues. Then...late fall signals the end of life.  Thriving from midsummer into deep autumn represents a relatively long flowering season, giving rise to thoughts about the seasons of my own life. I attempted to express my fascination with the energetic nature of these fresh and beautiful canna flowers, shining brightly in the last rays of the setting sun. For me, the canna inspires infinite themes.
