Love is complicated, confused, and conflict,
however,
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.
-HSIN LIN

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,
H,Lin

Artist Acrylic on triple primed gesso Acid free canvas.

<br>
Affirmation:
Friend is family by choice.
Partner is family by choice.
And you my dear, you are my family by choice.
-We are all different, but we make each other better. -
<br>
Cockatoos symbolize change and to embrace self-love. They also represent a sense of community and the importance of communication
<br>
As many of you may know I don’t paint birds often, but when I do it’s normally a self-projection.
This artwork was inspired by my visit to the Ballarat Bird World. I spent quite some time observing this playful little friend – White Cockatoo, one of my favourite Australian Native Birds.
Which also inspired me to paint this artwork as an extension of my previous series. Like a year book, featuring all our friends, carrying all kinds of memories.
Each bird has different appearance, different personality, and each one of them might remind you of that specific, special friend of yours. That person might be bubbly, fun or even weird in an amazing way, and you love them no matter what.
<br>
That’s why I name this series – Family by Choice. Hope you enjoy this original series of mine.
A latest piece from my animal series -THE VOICE OF NATURE -.

Sealed with clear spray varnish. Side panels painted
Signed at the front and ready to hang.
Comes with a certificate of authenticity.
Metallic Gold paint is used. It’s rich in texture and shines beautifully when you look at the physical painting.

<br>
Written in Gold - Meaning it is true, or becoming true by making a commitment.
Wattle flower – the symbol of life, renewal and potential.
The green and gold are the national colours of Australia, first used in 1899.
<br>
To experience the seasons, it has become a routine of mine to paint the first bloom around my surroundings, during its flowering season. This is my 2nd depiction of the gorgeous flowering wattle tree near my studio, which I walk past during my daily walk routine every day. The first one had found good home in QLD.
<br>
The flower always blooms in its 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.

Artist Acrylic on Acid-free canvas. Painted with palette knife and brushes.

<br>
Affirmation: Be your own king, higher and stronger.
<br>
To experience the seasons, it has become a routine of mine to paint the first bloom around my surroundings, during its flowering season. This artwork was inspired by a day trip to Ferny Creek, Mount Dandenong.
This gorgeous bouquet of white king protea caught my attention. Two giant king proteas stand tall in a white porcelain vase, feels like time has frozen on the spot, quiet and sacred.
<br>
The king protea is the most popular variety, having one of the largest flower heads in the Protea family.
Protea cynaroides, also known as Protea King White. White Protea stands for Purity, Honesty, and Integrity.
<br>
Protea flowers - native to Australia and South Africa, symbolized Strength, Courage, and Love. Therefore, there’s a saying that protea makes a great gift for someone who's about to embark on an exciting life experience or transformation.
I am especially in love with the story behind the name: In Greek legend, proteas were named after Proteus, the son of Poseidon. A sea god who had the power to know all things past, present, and future. 
<br>
The flower always blooms in its 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.

Be A Rainbow In Your Clouds- Eastern Rosella

31cm (W) x 41cm (H) x 1.5cm (D)

By HSIN LIN
Signed at front. Ready to hang. Side panel painted: Black

Acrylic painting on Premium quality triple coated 410 g/m2 Acid free canvas

<br>
Eastern Rosella -also known as the rosella, white cheeked rosella and rosella parakeet, mainly eat seeds but also berries, blossoms, nectar, fruit and insects.
They have white cheeks, bright red heads and necks and blue flight feathers.
Feathers on their backs and wings are black, edged with yellow-green or yellow.
The native symbols of Rosella are eternal love and devotion.
Rosella also indicates love and a shared journey.
<br>
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.
My creating process normally start from a short walk into the woods, touching the texture of the tree barks, feeling the sunlight reflecting on the leaves and grasses.
I then collect whatever I found during the walk as inspiration. 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. 
<br>
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. 
This time, I encountered a beautiful friend. A branch of fallen pine tree leaves is what I picked up.
<br>
My eyes landed on this colourful rosella resting quietly on the branch of one of the giant, old pine tree. 
In winter, pine tree leaves show different shades of colors, the earthy tone gave me a feeling of zen and tranquillity - a peace of mind. It’s a peaceful and delightful scene to enjoy.
I captured this beautiful friend with my paint brushes and canvas, worked on it for quite sometimes and finally have it completed while painting on my front yard under the warm winter sun.  
I would like to share the beautiful moment with you, hope this artwork be the brightest rainbow in your Clouds.
