A latest piece in my signature series -Bloom like flowers 2019.


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 4 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.

Affirmation – We are all the waves in the ocean, together we are one.
<br>
Australia native plants are one of my favourite themes to study and to paint. I especially love how our native plants survive all kind of extreme weather condition in its own unique ways and still stand tall. It reminds me that we shall never give up no matter what kind of difficulty we encounter in life.  
<br>
Kangaroo Paw- originates from western Australia. The most common meaning for the bloom is uniqueness and individuality.
Succulent symbolize Loyalty and endurance.
<br>
Grevillea symbolize courage, primarily native to Australia, are evergreen shrubs or trees of great beauty with needle-like to fern-like foliage and incredibly flamboyant flowers. 
I walk by this particular grevillea tree every single day, in every season, the leaves are fascinating itself that I have painted them in my ongoing series.
<br>
Clivia is also a very common plant that you can find in Australian garden, also known as Natal lily or bush lily. The spiritual meaning of the blossoms is very positive. Its symbolic meaning coming from the appearance- tall, straight leaves, symbolized fortitude, unyielding, modest and gentle.
In many culture, clivia flowers are also seen as a luck symbol for happiness, wealth and abundance, which is also one of the reasons why clivia plant is widely loved. 
In this season, the clivia plant on my front yard has all the beautiful red and dark green clusters formed.
<br>
Flower always bloom in their own time without competing with other flowers. May we all bloom in our time in the best season. Hope you enjoy this artwork of mine.

I present you a latest piece in my award-winning/signature series -Bloom like flowers.


Affirmation:
A life time may be short, but it may also be long enough for us to make it the greatest journey.
When the world turns upside down, cherish the people who love you, most important of all, remember to give yourself a life time love.


This project is actually planned for quite sometimes.
I started this artwork around March, since then, a lot of things happened and the world seems changed completely. On the other hand, we have more time to be with ourselves, to think and to realise what is really important to us.
This artwork somehow kept me grounded all this time and I happy to say I finally have it completed at the end of September.


It’s been a really long journey, sunny days and rainy days. Long working hours required determination and faith to achieved.
I spent almost every day studying those intricate composition and fine details. If you look close enough, each tiny petal was built up by more than 10 layers. The process wasn’t an easy task but It’s a challenge that I enjoyed, and I am proud of myself for not giving up.


There’s also another reason that I’ve never mentioned why I started this series in the first place. Which I did revealed during an artist interview on August 2020.
Years ago, I was ill.
The mother nature, my paint brushes and canvases were the things that helped me back to my feet. Since then I have decided - if I have the time/ life that I thought I nearly lost, I want to make good use of it to create something beautiful, to do something only I can do and to pass the positive messages and healing power to people, that intension never changed.
Life goes on and I think we all agree that 2020 is a very different year.
By the time I have this artwork completed, I decided to name this artwork - A Life Time Love, which is also an extension from my previous artwork – A Life Time Journey, A Life time blessing, and Have Faith in A Sunny Place.
Because the world might change in all of a sudden, but love keep us grounded.
This is also a reminder to myself- always take care and love yourself first, that’s what makes you stronger.
I sincerely hope you enjoy this artwork from my signature series - A LIFE TIME LOVE.


Spiritual meaning of the flowers-
Dianthus - flower of the Gods. Green Ball Dianthus, also known as Green Trick Dianthus are a unique flower with a fuzzy ball-shaped bloom.
The name comes from the Greek words “dios," meaning heavenly and “anthos," meaning flower.
Dianthus is one of the oldest cultivated flower varieties. Greeks and Romans used the flowers for decor, and garlands. Till now, Dianthus is still very popular and often used in floral arrangement.


Chrysanthemums symbolize deep passion and optimism.
Red roses stand for true love and romance
The flower of bird of paradise symbolize joyfulness and faithfulness.
Leucadendron, native to Australia, are often used to convey an appreciation for simplicity in life.
Simple beauty is one of the most popular meanings for this bloom.


This artwork is inspired by an amazing floral arrangement that I spotted in Donvale, Melbourne, Victoria, 2020 – A unforgettable year.
Also based on my own photos.


-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.
