-Flowers and girls’ series- by HSIN LIN
In this series, I first started painting most of myself or my cousins, basically the people around me.
Same as my "Bloom like flowers" series, flowers are the object representing life itself. In this series, I paint flowers in full bloom, an interpretation of the vitality, and also a salute to the golden age.


The goal of my art journey has always been true to myself and be true to the present moments.


To experience the changing of the seasons, it has become a routine of mine to paint the first bloom in my surrounding during its flowering season. I decided to add in the flowers from my front yard - peony stands for honour, and bush lily stands for great luck. In order to capture the details in this artwork, it actually took me several months to re-reconnect to myself mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.


I absolutely enjoy painting those photo-real flowers, sometimes I even have dreams full of beautiful, delicate flower petals after a long day in the studio, which is totally worth it.


I always want to deliver an 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

-WILD BOTANICAL ABSTRACT SERIES by H.Lin-
<br>
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.
<br>
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. 
<br>
All banksias produce copious nectar and are ideal for attracting wildlife into gardens. Seeds are also eaten by cockatoos, particularly the Yellow-tailed Black Cockatoo.
Banksia also symbolizes rebirth and new beginnings.

I present you a latest piece in my award-winning/signature series -Bloom like flowers.
<br>
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.
<br>
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.
<br>
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.
<br>
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.
<br>
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.
<br>
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.
<br>
-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.
To browse the full collection in this series, welcome to link to my profile for other listings.
Hope you enjoy.

Affirmation – Let’s not lose hope.
<br>
Gerbera Daisies are strong perennial plants with a delightful flower’s message.
The flowers symbolized happiness and gratefulness for the life you have been given.
They are a celebration of life. The Egyptian believed that the gerbera would lessen the sorrows and stresses of everyday life in the old days. It also has a meaning of closeness to nature and devotion to the sun.
<br>
Alstroemeria, also known as Peruvian lily or lily of the Incas, native to South America however some have become naturalized in the United States, Mexico, Australia, and New Zealand.
In 1753 Baron Claus von Alstomer, a Swedish baron, discovered the flower while collecting seeds on a trip to Spain. The Alstroemeria flower was named after him.
This long-lasting flower symbolises devotion and friendship. Alstroemeria is also a symbol of wealth, fortune and prosperity.
<br>
Symbolic of powerful Yang energy, Chrysanthemums are believed to represent longevity, joy and attractant of good luck in the home. If you receive chrysanthemums from someone, it is a symbol of love.
<br>
The beautiful sun-coloured yellow rose can also convey warmth, delight and affection, as well as say good luck, welcome back, and remember me. The yellow rose is the perfect flower for someone who needs a little cheering up.
