eustoma love

According to the Greek, “Eu” means beautiful while “stoma” means mouth. It is commonly found in North America, and native in Texas and Mexico.
The single flower resembles poppies or tulips, while the double variety has the appearance of peonies or roses. It is strikingly similar to the queen of flowers – Rose.

Whatever it may be, Eustoma is beautiful in its own way.

As i worked on this artwork, it makes me feel calm and happy. I imagined myself in a floral cotton dress, picking fresh eustomas from the garden outside my french window. The sun glowed and kissed gently on my face. The lace curtain danced to the cool breeze. I slowly arranged the eustoma into a lovely Chanel Parfum vase with some water filled in. I closed my eyes and took a deep breath. It’s a new day again.

It’s amazing how therapeutic drawing can be. It takes you to countless imagination and magical place that you wish you could be, only if you allow it to. How far and how long, you decide.

As i finished this piece, I smiled. It was a wonderful journey. It has opened a door for me to another dimension, away from the hustle and bustle of city.

  1. Your handwriting is very beautiful! And I really love your sketches/paintings too! I try to draw everyday, but I use my tablet so I hardly ever sketch traditionally. I wish I would.

    1. Thank you for your comments, Maria 😀 I occasionally paint on tablets too, but still prefer the touch on paper and pen/watercolour. It’s amazing how internet connects us through wordpress eventhough we are in different part of the world. I love your blog on ferrets, they are so cute!


      1. thank you! I haven’t updated our ferretblog for ages. Main reason is that I had a pregnancy/baby blog for almost three years on a different blogplatform. We still have two ferrets running a mayhem here and they give a good inspiration to drawings too.
        I oilpaint and it would be nice to learn the watercoloring too. Was planning to go buy a set but after work I kinda forgot… 😀
