Pink Roses In Watercolor

Roses are my favorite. Pink Roses are symbolic representations of love, gratitude and appreciation. They exude such graceful elegance which one can hardly ignore. The pink blooms are truly majestic. I consider them to be the best gifting option for all occasions.

NATURE - The Art of God

                                               "Nature is the art of God"
                                                                                                                             - Dante Alighieri

"Blue Blooming Beauties"

This nature quote will inspire many of us. Its not that I'm telling you something new . Its just that you pay attention. We are all familiar about the under mentioned facts but it is just that in our extremely busy lives, we don't pay attention to these little tidbits. Halt! stop for a while... Takeout time to relax and enjoy life more. At least, make an effort. Simply try  once and see the change/transformation in you. All this will help you in becoming a better individual. Life will be much happier when you start enjoying the little things in life. Delight in the beauty that surrounds you.

  • Living for others is the rule of nature. 
  • When you look deep into the nature, then you will realize that at times, nature plays the role of a teacher for us. 
  • Feel blessed and enjoy the 'gifts' of nature. Appreciate the beauty around you. 
  • Let it soothe and heal you. It is certainly cheaper than a therapy. Let nature be your medicine. 
  • Make it a habit to spend time in nature.
  • Learn to be patient from nature. Nature doesn't hurry.  

Pause and Remember -

"Life is a precious gift.

Use your days wisely."

Here, are a few of my recent watercolor floral paintings which reflects the divine serenity of nature. Life is full of colors... Enjoy each color with joy! Let yourself be surprised by nature. I believe flowers have a feel good factor whenever you look at them.

Happy Rose Day


Roses are romantic, adding different shades to one's love life! heart emoticon

As the Valentine's Day is coming, one thing I have observed is that the markets, card stores and gift shops etc. all are being flooded with hearts and red roses. The prices of red roses shoots up like anything during the Valentine's week and specially on Rose Day which is celebrated on February 7 every year. The demand for roses increases tremendously. Their abundance is intoxicating at times. But, you can't deny the fact that hearts and red roses are the symbols of 'Love'. And Valentine's Day is one such time to express your love and give gifts. As you all will agree that Love is the most wonderful feeling.

Rose Day is the first day of Valentine's week, also referred as 'love week'. The countdown has begun... and lovers are really looking forward to it. They start planning in advance - how they'll make their near and dear ones feel extra special. Are you thinking of ways to impress your beloved? Then, there is a whole range of products to choose from such as unique gifts/ cards/ cakes/ flowerschocolates/ teddies/ mugs/ cushions etc.
Here are some roses to add to the love and joy on this Rose Day :)

Pretty Pink Daisies

This week my choice of flower is "Daisy". Pretty Pink Daisies - fabulous flowers... I love painting on this subject. Why? 
The reason being its simplicity and innocence that it portrays. Also they are exquisite, visually appealing and always attract my undivided attention. They are my favorite. They are just so pretty!

These delicate flowers seem to be overflowing with happiness. Often, they are regarded as a symbol of purity especially the white ones. The cut Gerbera daisies make stunning bouquets and indoor flower arrangements. I have a deep personal liking for these stylish and sophisticated flowers. I bet their mere presence will brighten any occasion with their brilliant hues.

A simple fact about them which I also didn't know till now that they are named after a German botanist Traugott Gerber.

In this floral watercolor painting, I have painted pink daisies. The stem is generally upright and support the flower. Its center has a brown core. These are perfect summer floral plants, found in a wide variety of shades of white, pink, yellow, orange, red and purple. The daisy flowers are phototrophic which means that they always turn towards the source of light like sunflowers and belong to the sunflower family.

Here's the artwork in progress:

Oh! And did I tell you that how much I enjoyed painting these florets, with my favorite music put on and how the brush strokes were just going with the flow. In the end, I was quite pleased with the finished painting...

Have a nice weekend!

My first painting of the New Year 2015

My first painting of the New Year 2015: Daffodil flowers
This is because daffodils symbolize new beginnings / rebirth. These flowers with unmatched beauty often bloom in clusters. They are often used in bouquets or flower arrangements. A bunch of daffodil flowers as a gift ensures wealth and happiness. Gifting a single flower is considered to be a bad omen. Thus, flowers should always be given in a bunch.

daffodil daffodils yellow flowers floral blooms narcissus bunch bouquet
Yellow Daffodils

Their scientific name is Narcissus. Their common names include ~ jonquil and lent lily. They are popularly called 'lent lily' due to their long association with Lent. Let me tell you that, Lent is forty day long period of preparation for Easter sunday. During this period before Easter, many Christians do not eat certain type of food as a mark of respect to remember the suffering of Jesus Christ. 

These beautiful flowers are infact, a sign of end of winter season. They are the March birth month flower. They appear at the onset of spring. They have six petals and there is one flower per stem. Their basic color is yellow but generally white daffodils are also common.  

Many poets including William Wordsworth have composed poems on them. These ornamental flowers are a favourite with gardeners and florists for the simple reason that they have long life and have pretty, attractive blooms. The daffodil is the national flower of Wales and the symbol of many Cancer Charity Organisations. They also have medicinal value. 

Hope your New Year is off to a wonderful start.
Have a nice day! :)

Garden Inspired Bouquets

This series on #garden bouquets is a little effort to awaken the sense of appreciation for our mother Earth and to value the beauty around us. If you pay attention these magnificent floral creations of nature will certainly awe you by their colorful palette.

#Dianthus #purple #bouquet #bunch #flowers #watercolor #art #painting
"Purple Dianthus Bouquet of Blooming Wishes"
(12" x 16")
This watercolor painting of gorgeous purple bouquet is comprised of the vibrant lacy edged blooms. They are commonly referred to as 'pinks'. Moreover, they are available in lots of shades like pink, white, red, purple etc.

 "Flowers are like human beings... they thrive on a little kindness" 
The above quote by Fred Streeter is undoubtedly, true and holds the ground firmly against all related arguments. Don't you think so? Flowers: has been a favourite subject especially with the poets. And numerous poems have been composed describing their beauty, romantic effect that is created by these blossoms n number of times. A few call them as our 'silent' friends, who teach us human values such as gentleness, endurance and sacrifice. 

#pink #carnation #bouquet #flower #watercolors #painting
"Pink Carnation Bouquet"
(7" x 10")
A fresh bunch of brightly coloured pink carnations is ideal to convey your feelings to someone special. The breathtaking beauty of flowers in a garden is revealed when you take a closer look or hold them closely and make an effort to understand their language.
I strongly believe that flowers are indeed, inspired by life. Although, it depends upon one's own perspective; how he or she may think at a particular moment. They spread happiness, joy and are sources of hope in difficult times like a flower springing from the cliff of despair. 

#roses #pink #buds #leaves #watercolor #garden #painting #blooming
"Handful of Roses"
(8.5" x 12")
And here's another one for the #Garden Inspired Bouquets Collection. This lovely painting of roses has been done on handmade paper. Flowers are the symbol of hope. Blooming flowers do lift one's spirits. Looking at the spring flowers in full bloom is such a cheerful sight!

"California Poppies Bouquet"
(12" x 16")
Next in this collection series is the yellow California poppies bouquet painting. These deep yellow flowers create a brilliant display in the open fields. Isn't nature wonderful? You will be surprised by the brilliance and intensity of colorful blooms that the nature offers to us. 

#poppy #flowers #blooms #poppies #painting #gardening #growing #mixed #two colours #watercolour
"Mix Poppy Bouquet"
(9" x 12")
I've decided to include the above mix poppy bouquet painting in the Garden Inspired Bouquets series. It features the lovely poppy flowers in orange and pink colors creating some beautiful hues together. Indeed, flowers do make us understand the value / worthiness of life besides, invoking a feeling of contentment within. It would suffice to say
"Flowers are the sweetest things God ever made and forgot to put a soul into"
                                                                                            ~ Henry Beecher
 Please feel free to add a link to photographs of flowers growing in your very own garden in the comments section. I would love to add yours too in this collection.
Thanks for reading.
Have fun! :)

Yellow Hibiscus
The exotic yellow hibiscus flower is designated as Hawaii's state flower. The flowers are quite large and bright.
Undoubtedly, one can never get tired of admiring the beauty of flowers. The blooms during Spring and Winter are simply out of this world. So pretty that it can't be described in words. The flowers seem to spread joy around. We, human beings should learn to enjoy the nature in its purest form without disturbing the ecological balance.

Purple Poppy Flowers

Off to a wonderful start this November ~ ~
Gud morning folks, and what a lovely morning! Bright sunshine seeping in through the curtains bringing in a new day and rays of hope. I can't wait so long ... to get started. I have to paint something... I always choose a colorful palette before I pick up my brush and then draw a few doodles. Finally, I've made up my mind about what today's painting will be ...probably poppy flowers ... but not the usual red colour

Here's the final piece of art in watercolor ~

Purple Fantasy

The purple colored poppy flowers are looking good to me and I'm pretty happy with the title also.
Thats all for today ...
Have a nice day!
