I am a 40 year old married woman living In Turkey. Over the last four years I have rediscovered my love of painting and I want to be able to share my work with others and hope they enjoy looking at my art as much as I have enjoyed putting brush to canvas. I am a figurative artist whose predominant work focuses on the aesthetics of the female form in a contemporary style. Redbubble My work highlights the beauty of women of all ages and cultures in a unique manner.The paintings I produce embrace the curves, contours and gentility of the female body whilst evoking a sense of erotica. I also produce art covering a wide spectrum of other subjects: I paint, I photograph and I write. My art is eclectic in style and theme but my paintings tend to focus on the beauty and shapes of the female form.

Wild Anemone Flowers In A Spring Field
Anemone is a genus of about 120 species of flowering plants in the buttercup family. The story behind the anemone flower’s name is a sad one. The name comes from Greek and roughly translates into “windflower”. It is said in Greek Mythology that the anemone flower sprang up from the blood of Aphrodite’s slain lover, Adonis. The name “windflower” signifies that the wind that blows the petal open will also, eventually, blow the dead petals away.In Hebrew the anemone is called “Calanit Metzouya”). “Calanit” comes from the Hebrew word Cala which means “bride”, “Metzouya” means “common”. The Calanit earned its name because of its beauty and majesty, for whome it looks like a bride on her wedding day. The Anemone coronaria is one of the most well known and beloved flowers in Israel. During the British Mandate of Palestine British soldiers were nicknamed “Kalaniyot” for their red berets.Click the links to see all of my Redbubble Anemone Paintings, Anemone Photography, Anemone Greeting Cards, Anemone Stickers, Anemone Tees, Anemone iPhone Cases and Anemone iPads.    -——————————————————————————————————————————————————       *My Images Do Not Belong To The Public Domain.

Pink Oleander Blossom

Nerium oleander is an evergreen shrub or small tree in the dogbane family Apocynaceae, toxic in all its parts. It is most commonly known as oleander, from its superficial resemblance to the unrelated olive Olea. It is so widely cultivated that no precise region of origin has been identified, though southwest Asia has been suggested. The ancient city of Volubilis in Morocco may have taken its name from the Berber name oualilt for the flower. Oleander is one of the most poisonous of commonly grown garden plants.Click the links to see all of my Redbubble Oleander Paintings, Oleander Photography, Oleander Greeting Cards, Oleander Stickers, Oleander Tees,, Oleander iPhone Cases and Oleander iPads.    -——————————————————————————————————————————————————

Calla Lilies On A Red Background
Calla LilyThe calla lily is not really a lily at all, but rather a very elegant herbaceous flowering plant related to the caladiums and jack-in-the-pulpit. The stunning blooms of all varieties of calla make dramatic, long-lasting and spectacular accents to any garden or indoor furnishings, colors and decorating themes. Callas are favorite featured accents for weddings, formal occasions and even funerals.Although showy and aristocratic, the white varieties of calla are more common than colored specimens, which include shades of yellow, orange, green, pink, lavender and purple.
Like most flowers, the calla lily has a symbolic meaning. It is, ironically, associated with both weddings and funerals. The calla lily is symbolic of marriage and purity because of its white color and its trumpet-like shape, similar to a woman’s shape. It is also the symbol of rebirth and resurrection; therefore, it is widely used in funeral arrangements and planted in cemeteries Click the icon to see the full gift range, novelties and collectables of Golden Daffodils at Got The Gift?Click the links to see all of my Redbubble Calla Paintings, Calla Photography, Calla Greeting Cards, Calla Stickers, Calla Tees, Calla iPhone Cases and Calla iPads.Custom order on via EtsyMy artwork, photography and design can be found in my Zazzle Galleries.

“For oft, when on my couch I lieIn vacant or in pensive mood,They flash upon that inward eyeWhich is the bliss of solitude;And then my heart with pleasure fills,And dances with the daffodils.” William Wordsworth
The flower symbolism associated with the narcissus is normality, stay sweet, self-esteem and vanity. The name narcissus is derived from that of the youth of Greek mythology called Narcissus, who became so obsessed with his own reflection as he kneeled and gazed into a pool of water that he fell into the water and drowned. The legend continues that the narcissus plant first sprang from where he died. The Latin form is derived from the Greek Narkissos, possibly meaning “numbness; sleep. the icon to see the full gift range, novelties and collectables of A Tulip Collection at Got The Gift?Click the links to see all of my Redbubble Daffodil Paintings, Daffodil Photography, Daffodil Greeting Cards, Daffodil Stickers, Daffodil Tees, Daffodil iPhone Cases and Daffodil iPads.Custom order on via EtsyMy artwork, photography and design can be found in my Zazzle Galleries.

A Tulip Collection
A Tulip Collection by taiche




Although different tulip colors carry distinct meanings – yellow tulips symbolizing cheerful thoughts, white conveying forgiveness and purple representing royalty – a Turkish legend may be responsible for the red tulip’s symbolism. The story goes that a prince named Farhad was love struck by a maiden named Shirin. When Farhad learned that Shirin had been killed, he was so overcome with grief that he killed himself – riding his horse over the edge of a cliff. It’s said that a scarlet tulip sprang up from each droplet of his blood, giving the red tulip the meaning “perfect love.”Read more: Symbology of FlowersSeveral nations have a flower or plant that embodies their history. The tulip has been a long-standing symbol of the Netherlands since the early 17th century. Tulip bulbs were sold throughout Europe, and bulbs of rare species sometimes cost more than a house in Amsterdam during that time. The bamboo plant of China resembles strength and resilience, while the peony is supposed to help bring wealth and good fortune to the carrier.Tulip Declaration of love; perfect loverTHE MEANING & SYMBOLISM OF TULIP Originally from Persia and Turkey, tulips were brought to Europe in the 16th century, where they got their common name from the Turkish word for gauze (with which turbans were wrapped) – reflecting the turban-like appearance of a tulip in full bloom. By the 17th century, the popularity of tulips, particularly in the Netherlands, became so great that the price of a single bulb soared to new heights, causing markets to crash and putting into motion “tulip mania.”Although different tulip colors carry distinct meanings – yellow tulips symbolizing cheerful thoughts, white conveying forgiveness and purple representing royalty – a Turkish legend may be responsible for the red tulip’s symbolism.
