This is the first painting, "Hibiscus" ,in my installation in my "Artist for a Cause". I was inspired by the flowers in my garden. This was the first painting I did, using paint straight on canvas without sketching it. I find the beauty of nature is incredible, if you sit and observe a flower you would know what I mean. Sometimes I feel in our fast paced life we forget the very essence of nature, its smell, its feel, its sight. People should take time out of their hectic life to appreciate all that is around them.
As I said in my first blog post, the main outcome for this blog is to promote my artwork and raise awareness for different charities and organisations. Since I am only just starting off, I will be donating 10%-15% of the money earned from my paintings to the charities. The charities may vary depending on where attention is needed most, such as the NZ Quakes or Queensland floods. However, my main two charities will be an orphanage/medical facility in India and the Elephant Nature Park in Chiang Mai, Thailand.
