This particular painting is inspired by a fun experiment that I did last week.
A Sunny morning, I walked into my front yard, the dandelions bloom furiously after a few days rain.
So many Dandelion puffs, flower buds, and flowers bloom in striking yellow on the lawn.
Like a stunning Dandelion field.
In a beautiful Yellow and Green Colour combination.
I suddenly had a crazy idea - why not picked them all up before my husband do the weeding?
We've seen so many beautiful flower arrangement but never seen dandelions in vase.
So I picked them up, put them in a clean, tall glass vase, placed them by the window .
It was really beautiful, but it wilted when the sun goes down. I left them where they were.
However, the next morning, I walked into the kitchen , the flowers were awakened after a night sleep by morning sunlight, blooming gloriously, beautifully and surprisingly.
The water is still half full, just the right amount of water they need.
That magical moment touched my heart deeply.
This is why I have the title for this painting - Awakening Beauty.
I paint dandelion for many reasons.
Whenever I need a bit of energy boost , I paint dandelion.
A Dandelion stands for inner strength and vitality. A bunch of dandelions symbolized tons of courage and abundance in life.
The most common flower, has the grace of peony and the strength of winter camellia.
It'll always be there for you, in every season, sunny day or rainy day.
My favorite flower- Dandelion, that you can see everywhere if you pay them some attention.
This painting looked perfectly on any colour wall.
Hope you feel the good vibe in this painting, may it brings all the love to you as well.
Artwork inspired by the most common weed flowers in Bayswater ,Melbourne, Summer2018.
