To go with this illustrious painting, artist Diana Huh poignantly comments, “This is based on The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. This book is really, really important to me. Its message really changed me at a crucial time in my life.”
She also adds this lovely quote from the book:
So the Little Prince, despite all the goodwill of his love, had soon come to mistrust her. He had taken seriously certain inconsequential remarks and had grown very unhappy.
… “In those days, I didn’t understand anything. I should have judged her according to her actions, not her words. She perfumed my planet and lit up my life. I should never have run away! I ought to have realized the tenderness underlying her silly pretensions. Flowers are so contradictory! But I was too young to know how to love her.”
