A Flower called Orchid..

13 Dec


"Lonely No More.." Watercolor on Paper. Size A3. 2010.

I painted a flower yesterday

and they call it an Orchid

but it has another name

that I have yet to find it..

All I know is that

an Orchid

is a flower of beauty and grace

it gives pleasure for those who cares

it inspires, refreshes and enlightens

a heart full of despairs..

I painted an orchid yesterday

while I could not touch it

it was touching me

while I was watching it

it was watching me

while I was painting it

it was painting me..

with a different scheme of colors

it seems.



P/S: Credit should be given to my lovely  friend, Liezza Anne whose photo has provided me this beautiful inspiration.

    Lovely!!! You should paint slipper orchids (Paphiopedilum) next time. It is a very sexy group of orhids! 😀

    I chanced upon your blog while googling for images of malaysian trishaws. Found some very beutiful paintings on the subjects done by you.You seem apt at multi media & multi subject interests. After my retirement last 2008, I hv been revisiting my old hobby and feel good that I could still control my pen and flow with the drawings. BTW my specialty since my childhood days is pen & ink with rustic kampong scenes/ houses/past times. With the revived confidence I hv , like what you do , also commercialised my works in originals & limited prints.Would look forward to exchanging experiences & knowledge & opportunities.

    tengok lukisan ini…rasa macam nak makan!!! i love your watercolor work ET…you seemingly be able to control them just fine. I love watercolors too, but if you’re an infant…I don’t know what I am…masih dalam bentuk sperm dan ovum yang belum bersemuka kot. hahahaha.
