Affirmation – Everything changes in this world but you.

It's Banksia's season again and I kept seeing these beauties in the market, couldn't help to bring them back home whenever I sees them. It's a wonderful object to study, to paint and I especially love the spiritual meaning of it.

Some species of Banksia protect their seeds inside follicles while simultaneously opening up when experiencing fire.

It reminds me that we shall never give up no matter what kind of difficulty we encounter in life. What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.
Banksia also symbolizes rebirth and new beginnings.

Gumnut stands for healing and protection in the artwork. The term eucalypt originally meaning well (eu) covered (calyptos).

Banksia baxteri, member of the family Proteaceae, also known as 'Baxter's Banksia' and 'Bird's Nest Banksia'. It is endemic to Western Australia. Flowering occurs mid-Summer to Autumn continue until well into May.

Leucadendron, native to Australia and South Africa, are often used to convey an appreciation for simplicity in life. The blossoms are uncomplicated and have a simple appearance to them. They may be used alone or paired with dark green foliage for bouquets.
Simple beauty is one of the most popular meanings for this bloom.

Affirmation: Dream big, dream glow.
<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 Olinda, Victoria. This gorgeous bouquet caught my attention. 
<br>
Protea flowers - native to Australia and South Africa, symbolise courage and Love. 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.
Banksia coccinea, native to Western Australia, also known as the scarlet banksia, waratah banksia or Albany banksia, is an erect shrub or small tree in the family Proteaceae. Banksia coccinea plants are killed by bushfire, and regenerate from seed.
Banksia symbolizes rebirth and new beginnings. To move on from the past courageously, to have the strength to look forward to tomorrow.
Leucadendrons are often used to convey an appreciation for simplicity in life. The blossoms are uncomplicated and have a simple appearance to them. Simple beauty is one of the most popular meanings for this bloom.
As for my all-time favourite - Eucalyptus leaves stand for Healing and Protection.
<br>
All the native blossoms bloom gloriously like a dream. Therefore, I have the title - Blooming Dreams, for this particular artwork.
<br>
Flowers 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.

Affirmation: While there are a thousand ways to say I love you, my strongest love language is always acts of service.
<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 depiction of the gorgeous bouquet that was gifted to me by my family and family members overseas as a surprise, during the opening night of my solo exhibition - Bloom Like Flowers, presented by Maroondah City Council at Maroondah Federation Estate Gallery. (Melbourne, Australia) Even the galley curators kept a secret till I saw a large, breathtakingly beautiful bouquet with the crowd during the opening. 
<br>
I was overwhelmed by a surge of various emotions. Words could not describe how happy and grateful I am for all the love and support I received. Sometimes the strongest love may be left unsaid but presents itself loudest in action. 
Therefore, I chose to express it in the best way I could think of - with my paint brushes and canvas.
<br>
All the native blossoms bloom gloriously. A precious memory that I will cherish forever. Therefore, I have the title - A Thousand Ways to Love, to say I love you, for this particular artwork.
<br>
I started this artwork around Dec 2022. It’s been a long journey, sunny days and rainy days. To depict the different textures of those special native flowers correctly, somedays I even had to start all over if I wasn’t satisfied with the outcome the day before. Some of the tepals are velvety, some are furry, and some have woody, rough surfaces or relatively firm textures.
The process wasn’t an easy task but It’s a challenge that I always enjoyed. The flowers I painted during day sometimes appear in my dreams. After 12 months of production time, I finally had it completed on Dec 2023.
Here I present you the latest piece from my award-winning/signature series -Bloom like Flowers.
<br>
BANKSIA prionotes, a species of shrub or tree of the genus Banksia in the family Proteaceae, also known as Acorn Banksia or Orange Banksia. In the Language of Flowers, Banksia symbolizes rebirth, regeneration and new beginnings.
<br>
Amaranthus, with tiny flowers blooming in cascading clusters creating a weeping effect, is considered a symbol of immortality due to its longevity.
The name Amaranthus came from the Greek “amarantos”, meaning “unfading”, which also describes the vivid colours of the flowers that can last for weeks while on the plant.
<br>
Dracula Celosia, formerly Celosia cristata, also known as cockscomb, is the crested variety of the species Celosia argentea.
The unusual shape and richly-hued blooms of the flower is not the only reason why it stands out, it’s also believed that celosia is a good omen.
Celosia is a symbol of boldness. If you want to wish someone courage, gifting Celosia to the person you care about will send the right message. Celosia flowers also stand for affection, love, individuality, partnership, resilience, and strength.
<br>
Yellow Paper Daisy, also known as Sticky Everlasting, Shiny Everlasting, or Golden Everlasting.
Yellow Daisy stands for youthful beauty and gentleness. Some people look at the daisy to be a symbol of good luck. However, the most popular meanings attached to the daisy are - loyal love, innocence, and purity.
As for my all-time favourite - Eucalyptus flowers and gum nuts stand for Healing and Protection.
<br>
Flowers 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.

Affirmation: Fly higher and shine brighter, because nothing can dim your light.
<br>
From where I live in Bayswater, there is a big field of forest near my studio.
My creating process normally starts with a short walk into the woods, touching the texture of the tree barks, and feeling the sunlight reflecting on the leaves and grasses.
I then collect whatever I found during the walk as inspiration.
Sometimes I have various 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 gifts from the nature of the day for me.
<br>
There is one particular orange gum tree that I walk past every day.
I was obsessed with the delightful view of the sunlight reflected on those striking orange blossoms every time. It has become a routine of mine to paint the first bloom of the plant around my surroundings, now you are looking at my latest interpretation of my favourite gum tree.
<br>
CORYMBIA FICIFOLIA (BABY ORANGE), a tough Australian native plant with brilliant bright orange flowers in summertime, is quite common in urban areas, gardens and streetscapes.
New growth appears bronze-red then turns green providing a beautiful contrast of colour.
Eucalyptus flowers also have the symbolic meaning of Healing and Protection.
<br>
Flowers 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.

Affirmation – The Sun shines on you, you are ready for a new day, a new adventure.
<br>
My neighbour has this beautiful camellia tree in her garden which bloom gloriously every year. I admire its grace whenever I walk past the flowering tree.
The glossy leaves add shiny-looking foliage with sunlight, along with the gorgeous red flowers and buds, it is captivating.
Generally, camellia flowers symbolize love, affection, and admiration.
Red camellias symbolize love, passion, and deep desire.
<br>
Camellia is evergreen, meaning that the leaves stay on the plant all year round.
These heat-loving, drought-tolerant Camellias thrive in hot weather conditions, need minimal watering and can handle long periods with little to no rain.
I present you these gorgeous camellias, that bloom gloriously just for you, in every day, every season.
This is my latest interpretation of my favourite camellia tree.
<br>
Flowers 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.
