The Rosy Seasons of Life

by Tubi
“To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven.” Ecclesiastes 3:1
In recent years, O. Yemi had used his paintings to speak about the glooms and dooms around the world. In spite of the despondency and challenges part of life, there is a rosy side of life as well. In this painting “The Rosy Seasons of Life” O. Yemi chose an optimistic look of life to celebrate rosy side of life
Greatly influenced by the works of Renaissance’s artist Giuseppe Arcimboldi, the artist that used fruits to paint portrait of his subjects like “VERTUMNUS” – his portrait of Emperor Rudolph II in year 1590, O. Yemi used Roses and Thorns to paint what he called “the fact of life”. O. Yemi interpreted the successes and failures in everyone’s life to be the “Roses and Thorns” of life.

In celebrating the Rosy Seasons of life with this painting he wrote the poem below.
It is a Wonderful World after all; after all the tilling and toiling of the working time.
It’s a wonderful world after the gloomy and dreary of the winter time.
It’s a wonderful world; the sun is shining, the nightingales are singing and human beings are dancing.
It’s a wonderful world; the fields are green and the flowers are blooming.
It’s a wonderful world when the human race takes a break from all wars, worries and woes and be at peace with himself and to enjoy the bounties of the Lord.
It is not a perfect world, Yes!; it is a wonderful world.

These are the thoughts that influenced this painting.
