36”x 36” x 1.5" Oil Painting, painting continues around edges.
Every flower has its own symbolic meaning and significance. No matter which flower is your favorite, there is a lot to know and learn about it. Cultures around the world adore flowers and have used them as symbols to express various emotions and even social issues. Dahlias are native to Mexico and Guatemala, where they grow like weeds in open valleys. These native wildflowers were actually first cultivated by the Aztecs who held them in high regard and associated them with the sun gods. It is believed that the Aztecs used parts of the dahlia for food and medicine.
As for symbolism, dahlias symbolize grace, change, uniqueness, kindness, elegance, creativity, dignity, commitment and balance. For this painting, I identify it with the symbol of grace, it’s beautiful, posed and controlled. If this dahlia represented a person, it would be a person of high standards and morals while staying graceful in life.
