Artist's description: Grevillea Flower Of Boldness, Strength and Courage.
Affirmation - You are invincible when you have nothing to lose.
Keep the best you for the best season .
Thank you for stopping by my original painting.
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.
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's one of my favorite tree .
I walk by this particular grevillea tree every single day, in every season, the leaves are fascinating itself that I have painted them in my on going series, but the flowers are truly some kind of beauty out of this world.
In this painting , I have both the grevillea tree leaves in the background, as well as the flowers at front.
Words can not describe how happy I was seeing it flowers this summer, so I chose the green/ brown/ yellowy colour palette to salute to this graceful flowering grevillea.
It is the colours combination I saw when I look at the tree under the blue sky.
Therefore you may see there's very faint blue in the under layer, it is the reflection of the blue sky.
Hope you enjoy the beautiful world of my original artwork too.
