"CHRYSANTHEMUM BLOOMS", November Birth Flower - 8x10 Original Watercolor
OP-LIB-11Regular price $175.00 CAD
Chrysanthemums, the birth flower of my baby girl. These flowers are a favourite amongst Chinese flower paintings. I wanted to bring a bit of this painting style through the use of brushstrokes and composition as an homage to our Chinese heritage. I grew up in Canada, and can be considered as a first generation immigrant, but really I should be called the1.5 generation. Like so many others, I grew up between two worlds and two cultures, and I am still constantly figuring out the balance each day.
I know as my daughter is growing up, she will have a completely different experience than me, growing up as 2nd generation Chinese Canadian. My hope is that she will always know her roots and bloom whereever she is planted.
