Yup. They have a beautiful theme this year. And I’m excited to again fest my eyes to the choreographed nature, sweat in the hot sun, take some great flower pictures and most importantly,  pay a visit  to the Malaysia Watercolor Society‘s (MWS)  Booth! I have been participating in MWS Art Exhibition at the Floria since 3 years back… and this year, it’s another opportunity I would love to enjoy too . So, I am sending a few pieces of my flower paintings including one most recently painted especially for the Event…
Watercolor on Paper, 13″ x 19″, July 2011.
Actually, at this posting time… it is still a work-in-progress.
And I’m thinking that this painting shall be entitled… ” A Love Affair.”
Well, a mixture of Love and Roses can never go wrong.

    Wow! Beautiful. I hope you repost when you’ve finished. I love the light on the rose closest to us. That background is so rich and full of lovely layered colors.

    I agree – with a combination of love and roses you can’t go wrong! The way you handle your watercolors is absolutely beautiful… I love the contrast between the blurred background and the detailed flowers.

    Have a wonderful weekend!
