Happy Valentine’s Day WordPress

My very first watercolor painting


I hope all is well with you. As for me, and as you know, depression and I are like a switch—so please bear with me. I am just thankful to God, I am coping at work amid my health challenges. But one of my ways of coping is through the arts of watercolor painting with mostly flowers as my subject. And I am sharing it below.

Thank you for this opportunity to share few of my humble works and a poem. Again, happy Valentine’s Day! I wish you love, peace, and joy. I love you all!

Tulip symbolizes unconditional love.
Birds of Paradise are beloved in Hawai’i.
Daffodils, Daisies et Al
Aren’t sunflowers the happiest flowers in the world?
Gladiola is my birth month flower.
. . . Just one of my doodles.
“Carpe diem,” as anemones say.
Doodling the doodles. I am but God’s doodle too.
Hibiscus is the State Flower of Hawai’i.
Do you know that doodle is defined by Merriam-Webster as “to scribble absentmindedly,” (2023).
Topping the Hall Famers are roses.
Roses and Tulips

P.S. Thank you, Brad, Cindy, Ivon, Paul, Gavin, Esther, Francis, and to all of you to whom I owe for your unwavering support. I am deeply grateful and humbled. Happy Valentine’s Day!

  2. What a brilliant and beautiful talent you have with your watercolors, Aina. While I can see your improvement from your first one ~ even your first painting is lovely in feeling and simplicity. Wishing you happiness, especially during this final month of winter… and remember, the beauty and hope of spring are on their way 🙂
