I walked into the woods, the voice from nature of the day is:
Affirmation—Desire is the key to motivation, our wish becomes our will, determination brings success. So, let us light up a candle, make a wish, take a chance and make a move.
This Australian native plant is one of my favourite objects to study, to paint and I especially love the spiritual meaning of it. Some species of Banksia protect their seeds inside follicles while simultaneously opening up when experiencing fire.
It reminds me that we shall never give up no matter what kind of difficulty we encounter in life. Sometimes challenges in life may be good things in disguise.
Banksia symbolises rebirth and new beginnings. To move on the past courageously, to have the strength which pain cannot touch and to look forward to tomorrow.
Banksia Menziesii, also known as firewood banksia or strawberry banksia, is a species of flowering plant in the genus Banksia. Leaves are dull green with new growth in greyish green. Flowers are often in two-coloured red or pink and yellow.
Menzies Banksia is commonly seen in Australian Parks and gardens, it provides food for animals and birds, in particular honeyeaters.
May we all bloom in our time in the best season. Hope you enjoy this artwork of mine.
