  • Yes, almost exactly what came into my mind when I saw this. I love how you've captured such symbolism. Very nice work, hun. Beautiful -- in more than one way. 3nodding 5/5

  • Hmm ^^ I guess, if you looked it that way :3
    But I wanted to make a contrast...with the fresh grass, which symbolizes youth, and liveliness, and the rotting apple, which symbolizes death and decay. I've changed the color of the leaves to try to make something in the stage between youth and death ^^ Shriveled leaves...with faded color.
    Thanks for your comment though! It tells me how the viewers might think about this piece ^^

  • brown grass or rotting leaves would have been a better background if the main focus is "decay," but I like the idea. Keep up the good work!
