Grevillea—primarily native to Australia, are evergreen shrubs or trees of great beauty with needle-like to fern-like foliage and incredibly flamboyant flowers.
It has magnificent flowers in varied shapes and forms. Most have long flowering periods. The species I encountered in my neighbourhood is peaches and cream—it has the most stunning, harmonic greenish-yellowy-pinkish colour hue.
In this painting, the flowers stand out gloriously from the leaves at the background.
It is one of my favourite trees. I adore the beauty of it every day I walk into the woods.
The bloom of it stands for Boldness, Strength and Courage.
Exactly what I would like to express in this piece.
