If you know me well, you'll know that I love Art galleries but I really don't go often because I'm so busy and there aren't many near me. A few days ago, I took a trip down to Parnell, New Zealand and found this amazing art gallery. It was very spacious and the art galleries around it is also very beautiful. The only thing I thought was a little weird was how outgoing the gallery keeper was. She was a little pushy and didn't let you enjoy the gallery but besides that, I'm quite confident the few galleries that were in Parnell is now one of my favourite places in the world. At first I thought how boring it would be because Parnell isn't a very newly developed area, it's more of a small place that's been there for god knows how long.

I took this pamphlet from the 'International Art Centre', which is one of the galleries I went into and I couldn't help but admire the beauty of the artwork that laid before my eyes. I love flowers, I love pink and red, I love contrast and so this painting drew me in. So much so, that I took a copy if my own. This was an exhibition that happened in 2011 called Fleurs (Flowers) and I'm honestly so sad I couldn't go to it.

As I said before, flowers and pink are my favourite things to mesh together and so this artwork above fits into that category. I was so drawn to this because its like an explosion of nature, I really don't know how the painter thought of this. If I could buy this piece of artwork, I would however, I'm just not that rich! The colours and frame balance out nicely from light to dark. It's one of my favourite artwork I've ever laid my eyes on and I truly hope this painter goes far in their career. I don't think I mentioned this but this piece is from 'Jonathan Grant Galleries'. I could look at this piece of artwork for years and years and not get bored of it.
