-Flowers and girls’ series- by HSIN LIN
A piece of my ongoing series- "Flowers and Girls".
In this series, I first started painting most of myself or my cousins, basically the people around me.
Same as my "Bloom like flowers" series", flowers are the object represent life itself.
In this series I painting flowers in full bloom, an interpretation of the vitality, also a salute to the golden age.
This self-portrait of mine actually took a lot of time for me to re-recognise myself, knowing myself a bit further more to complete. It's a journey literally. Peony stands for honour, and bush lily stands for great luck in this painting.
I also enjoy painting those photo real flowers in the process too.
I always want to deliver an important message in my floral series - Now is the very best time to be alive.
Be at the moment, be yourself. Whenever you are experiencing difficulty, life itself can be bloomed like flowers with no fear
A Self-portrait. Painted in Bayswater, Melbourne, Victoria, Spring, 2017.
