Affirmation- Stay humbled when you soar, be courageous when you go through the low point.
I would also like to share the concept behind this piece and the title I have for this artwork if you have a bit of time.
It was years ago when I picked up my paint brushes again after many years away from art.
I was going through a all time low in life at that moment, came across difficulties that I wasn't able to deal with by myself.
Nature was the only thing bring me strength and helped me get back on my feet.
I enjoyed observing different kind of flowers, Australia native plants and trees.
To ground myself, I started express my feelings by painting those objects that I was obsessed with.
I started with some small project at the beginning, gaining enormous joy and peacefulness from the process.
Then I stared to work on more detailed and bigger project, at the same time, focusing on developing my own skills and style, which is a challenge that I set for myself from time to time, and a challenge I enjoyed with no doubt.
Being inspired by nature enlighten me in all aspects of life.
All the message that I wanted to deliver to the viewer are the pure joy and calmness that I experienced during my art process- the nature order.
Gradually, Art is no longer a one man journey to me when I started to get lovely feed backs from collectors round the worlds, sharing their joyful experience and inspirations from my paintings.
I am very grateful and beyond humbled that I have the love and support from my collectors since I started.
Ｗhat is even better is I get to know a little bit more about how the artwork plays a important role in their life.
Now , I am happy to say Art is a life time journey to me, no matter how the life winds blows, we have art.
In this particular painting, the delicate, exotic and graceful orchid represents love, luxury, beauty and strength.
In ancient Greece, orchids were associated with virility.
Red chrysanthemums symbolise deep passion and optimism.
Pink roses are symbolic of gratitude and appreciation.
The Orange in perfect round shape surrounded by giant Orchids stands for harmony and abundance in life.
The flowers bloom gloriously along with my favourite gum tree leaves at the background.
It is a reminding to ourselves that we can live the only life we have right here right now, like the flowers bloom with passion; however, you can also relax a bit, looking up the blue sky when you need time to breath.
(Which is also the reason why I used the undertone - Sky Blue- for this artwork.)
For people who read through the description and stopping by this painting of mine, thank you for joining me on a life time journey, I sincerely hope you enjoy this piece.
-Bloom like flowers -
In this signature series of mine, flowers as the object represent life itself to me.
Our own will to be alive, and the way we want to be alive.
While I carefully paint these tiny flower petals, or built up those fine leaves vines , it is like the way we try to figure out those uncertainty, furthermore, to be able to be closer to the truth a little bit more.
