Graduation Peonies

This past weekend I graduated from my university. As a gift from family, I received the most beautiful flowers that I have ever seen in my life. I wanted to remember that special day so I painted the peonies.

Aylin Carrying Sunflowers

Inspiration is taking over my soul this week. My little sister Aylin and sunflowers are a part of this inspiration. My sister is the sweetest little girl that I have ever met. I am not only saying that because she is my sister, but her actions have made me come to this conclusion. Her heart is nurturing, positive, and caring. In this painting I represent her beautiful caring heart with sunflowers.

 

“Trapped, Stagnant, and Free” Original Sumi Ink and Watercolor Painting

Trapped, Stagnant, and Free is my latest watercolor painting. Cherry blossoms and birds are extremely dear to me. Both are symbols of beauty, nature, freedom, and love. There are three birds in this painting. There is one that is trapped by a small string and cannot fly. The bird all the way to the right is stagnant. It does not know whether to fly or to stay on the branch. The last bird is reaching out and is ready to be free. The blue birds manifested with the painting. I did not plan them. Maybe it is my self conscious telling me something?:P
