Artist's description: Thank you for stopping by my original painting.
I am HSIN LIN , Full Time Artist based in Melbourne Australia , obsessed with the beauty of nature .
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.
I walk by this beautiful tree every single day, in every season, the leaves turns red / brown with a hint of purple in summer , with fascinating clusters.
Finally , one day I picked up a fallen branch, and a fallen brown cluster.
I hold it in my hand , the cluster is firmed and plumped, still warm under the blessing of the summer sun.
I felt the vitality of nature in this single cluster.
I wrapped them up gratefully, brought it back to my studio and painted it in my latest series - WILD BOTANICAL ABSTRACT 2018.
Gold powdered pigment was blended with gesso for the based layer which is inspired by the golden sunlight, it shines thorough a bit in the following blocking process which is also my favorite part.
I also chose purple, brown , red and green in a soft tone, warm colour palette to interpret the magical moment that once touched my heart.
In the meantime , when I finished this painting, it's about time that I get to reunion with my family from overseas after a few years apart, with delightful anticipation .
To all my collectors and friends who stopping by this original artwork of mine, thank you for reading it through the back ground story.
All the blessing to you to all the effort that you put into to the thing you are after yield positive results, just like this beautiful blooming tree.
