Paintings & Stories: 14. Eleanor Wunderlich Award for Excellence - 16th International HSNY/ASBA 2013


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.   

More behind-the-painting-story can be found in the American Society of Botanical Artists website:

Giclee prints are available.

  2. Thank you! This is my favorite, too, among all my paintings. It is hard to pick one as one's favorite when we treat our artworks as our babies. But I love this one particularly... :)
