As many of you know Victoria is now in stage 4 lockdown.
This artwork is painted during the lockdown, a special isolation diary that I wrote with my paint brushes. That is why I name this artwork 'The Lockdown Diary' to reminds us that there's always something beautiful around us in our daily life. Bright future is ahead of us if we hang on to hope.
It has become a routine of mine to paint the first bloom of the camellia tree every year, this is my 2nd depict and the 1st one had found new home soon it left my easel. Now you are looking at my latest interpretation of my favourite camellia tree.
My neighbour has this beautiful camellia tree in his garden which bloom gloriously every year.
Flower always bloom in their own time without competing with other flowers. This year is no difference. The large blossoms in beautiful, striking red / magenta is a delightful sight to enjoy under the winter sun.
I am obsessed with the delightful view of the sunlight reflected on those flower petals, the yellow / brown earthy tone on the leaves every time when I study the bloom.
So, I set up my easel at my back yard, where I can sight the camellia tree from a distance, without leaving my house, painting on spot in quiet afternoon under the clear blue sky.
Generally, camellia flowers symbolize love, affection, and admiration.
Red camellias symbolize love, passion, and deep desire.
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, needs minimal watering and can handle long periods with little to no rain.
I present you these gorgeous camellias, bloom gloriously just for you, in every day, every season.
