Watercolorist Xu Minghui says she was enthralled at the moment she entered the prosperous garden at Claude Monet's villa in Giverny, in France, known for its blooming flowers which were planted to the planning of the impressionist himself and became a recurring motif in his creation.

"The colorful blossoms, with pleasant smells, erupted with vigor in the bright sunlight," she recalls of the visit in May 2010. "It was a celebration of life, and a hub for one to pacify his heart and soul."

Since then she has been painting flowers of different species she encounters. Also, she frequents the Monet Garden as much as possible for inspirations.

Her solo exhibition in Beijing,  Florileges , brings together dozens of watercolor and oil flower still-lifes to usher the audience into the dynamism and vibrancy of spring. Her brushwork features a strong contrast of hues of high saturation by which the artist wants to give a full expression of "the competitive atmosphere among flowers to catch most light and attention" in nature. It is also a reminder to people that "flowers also bloom in people's minds once they are in need to ease anxieties".

Springtime is the time to enjoy the flowers.  The artist may not be Monet, but I like how warm and comfortable her version of flowers are.

They're a total change of pace from the others.

They are more what I would call impressionistic. All the others have hard lines in them: A clearly demarcated window, vase, even the flowers are separated from each other by hard lines. I am not saying this is bad, but the last two are, IMO, clearly more "touchy-feely" than the rest.

Good analysis.  Did you ever study art?  I admit I never did.
