Artist's description: This particular painting is Inspired by my sister, who is also the model of my another figure study - Morning Sunlight. You can see she had a hair cut, and a new hair colour In this piece.
I have known this girl for many many years, by saying sister , we are not biological related, but close enough to call each other sister.
I've seen her got hurt, and bloom in love, love and trust like she have never had.
I've also seen her frustrated by life , but never give up, laugh like she have never had,
I've seen her grown up from a girl to a women, getting more beautiful day by day, but still keep her pure heart.
A sincere, lovable, and courageous girl that I adore.
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 neighborhood is peach and cream- has the most stunning, harmonic greenish- yellowy -pinkish colour hue.
In this painting , I have both the Grevillea Tree leaves in the background, as well as the shrubs flowers in front.
It's one of my favorite tree. 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.
The strength and beauty under the faint smile of every girl and women.
