Love is complicated, confused, and conflict,
Love is also sweet, powerful and is the answer of everything.

Rainbow roses meaning- Colouring your love and life.

Artwork inspired by nature , Toorak ,Victoria, Summer 2017.

COMPLICATED LOVE-RAINBOW ROSES was inspired by a bunch of rainbow roses in a flower shop located in Toorak arcade. Me and my husband walked pass by it in a quiet Saturday afternoon. We stopped by, and I had a very close look of the amazing colour combination and composition of those roses, it was captivating and breath-taking.
The image was always in my mind so I chose to paint it down on canvas.

Love is always complicated to me. Love is a combination of needs, wants, desires in all different kind of form ,sometimes it is compromise.

Young love is strong, passionate, like a hot summer day with red roses bloomimg and quick stormy shower. We tried so hard and willing to do whatever it takes to learn what love is.

But somehow, maybe someday, You may also find love can be peaceful ,contain, but still full of all the good and bad things in life ,and just like a short walk pass by a flower shop in a quiet afternoon. The simple companion means a thousand words.

I started this particular painting with a purplish gold for under layer,because purple stands for a soft heart, tenderness and romance to me.
But when I finished the whole piece ,I used a wide heavy duty brush to paint the whole background white to stands out the colourful flower petals , but still left some uneven storkes texture showing some purplish hue underneath if you take a really close look of the detail of it.

So I choose these specific rainbow roses, which contain many colours, contained many different emotions and meanings in life to tribute to "Love".
If you have someone who you can stopped by in a random place to adore the beauty of a flowers or whatever it is with, than you have love already.
And, maybe share a unique,one of a kind ,beautiful rainbow roses painting that will never wilt to your special one in a special day would be a brilliant idea? I hope you enjoy the painting as much as I do too.

-warm regards,

Affirmation -
Brave to be bold, to be different and born to be yourself.
Grevillea - primarily native to Australia, are evergreen shrubs or trees of great beauty with needle-like to fern-like foliage and incredibly flamboyant flowers. 
It has magnificent flowers in varied shapes and forms. Most have long flowering periods. The species I encountered in my neighbourhood is peaches and cream- has the most stunning, harmonic greenish- yellowy -pinkish colour hue.
In this painting, the flowers stand out gloriously from the leaves at the background. 
It is one of my favourite trees. I adore the beauty of it every day I walk into the woods. 
The bloom of it stands for Boldness, Strength and Courage. 
Exactly what I would like to express in this piece.

Artwork inspired by nature at Royal Botanic Garden , Cranbourne, Autumn, 2019. -HSIN LIN

I am HSIN LIN , Full Time Artist based in Melbourne Australia , obsessed with the beauty of flowers . 
From where I live in Bayswater, there is a big field of forest nearby.
My creating process normally start from a short walk into the woods, touching the texture of the barks, feeling the sunlight reflecting on the leaves and grasses . 
I then collect whatever I found during the walk as inspiration. 
Sometimes would be the gum tree, oak tree, pine tree leaves, or bird feathers; in autumn I have acorns, and wattles in winter. There's only one rule for my collecting process, never take from the living tree/life. 
I collect what had fallen only, and those are the gift from the nature of the day for me.

This painting is painted after my visiting of Royal Botanic Garden in Cranbourne recently, as Banksia has a special place in my heart.  A brave, evergreen  native tree with the humbled strength. 
Hope you enjoy the colourful world of my original art too.

Warm Regards,

-Flowers and girls series- by HSIN LIN
A piece of my on going series- "Flowers and Girls".
In this series, I first started painting most of my self or my cousins, basically the people around me.
Same as my "Bloom like flowers" series", flowers are the object represent life itself.
In this series I painting flowers in full bloom , a interpretation of the vitality, also a salute to the golden age .
This self-portrait of mine actually took a lot of time for me to re-recognise myself, knowing myself a bit further more to complete. It's a journey literally. Peony stands for honour, and bush lily stands for great luck in this painting.
I also enjoy painting those photo real flowers in the process too.
I always want to deliver a important message in my floral series - Now is the very best time to be alive.
Be at the moment, be yourself. Whenever you are experiencing difficulty, life itself can be bloomed like flowers with no fear

As many of you may know I don’t paint birds very often, but when I do it’s normally a self-projection.
From where I live in Bayswater, there is a big field of open woodland near my studio.
The grassland is always my favourite playground, especially during the lockdown. I often accompanied by varies local birds such as cockatoos, magpies, colourful rosellas, lorikeets and kookaburras during the walk. 
Pink Cockatoos / Major Mitchell's Cockatoo are hard to miss, with their pink colouring and distinctive red and white crest. 
These friendly, playful, highly social birds represent inner influence, balance, joy, abundance.
I often see pink cockatoos having launch under the winter sun peacefully or fly up to the branches in flock playfully. It’s one of my favourite scenes to enjoy.
I captured the magical scene with my eyes, froze the moment with my paint brushes and canvas, worked on it for quite sometimes in my studio.
This artwork is also painted during the lock down in Victoria as we are having it again. 
A special isolation diary that I wrote with my paint brushes. Hope you enjoy this original artwork of mine.
