Dandelion Head in Green Bottle

Dandelion Head in Green Bottle Oil on gessoed board. 120x110mm Painted April 16th.
It struck me while painting this subject that it was a fitting one for this time of year. The Dead Dandelion was a bit like a crucifixion and the seed head could represent a rebirth or resurrection. I've always felt the Easter story is more universal than the Christian version, which is just an adoption of an earlier pagan festival celebrating new life and fertility, as far as I'm aware.
