Prairie Crabapple, Malus ioensis, watercolor, ©Heeyoung Kim
I am very happy and honored to receive this award from ASBA and the New York Hort.
This painting is one of my favorites. It shows the beauty from every facet of nature; the new life, dying one, dead one .... all are beautiful! I tried to tell the story of death and rebirth, and that story is delivered through strong composition.
