This other blog (see link below) was created to display my decorative items for sale. However as time passes by, the time to paint for sale just eluded me

No special reason as to why I still have this blog... maybe it's just to remind me..... that's where and how I started to be where I am now :)

All items shown are hand-painted personally by yours truly... but now I focus on commissioned jobs. So, I do take orders... but the queue is long... sorry :( .... but if you are willing to wait in the queue... I'm more than obliged to paint for you..... It would be an honour!!!!

What's new?

So what's new? My paintings of course ;) Apart from the usual roses and hydrangeas on cutlery and tea boxes and plaques and various other wood pieces... small items for the house... I'd done a few major projects worth mentioning.

Painted a simple garden scenery on 3-panel wooden screen. It was not a pre-planned traced-out design there... created the scenery as I go along. Had another pic in my mind initially... but what came out was not the original design I created in my mind's eye. That's just me... I paint as I feel it and let the juices flow to suit the piece. I'd to put in a lot of thoughts here just to make sure there's a continuity in the panels... but all in all.... say what you like... I enjoyed painting it...yup!yup!yup!

I also painted on a huge 6' x 5' mirror. Ruby loves the Port Merion collection... and thus she commissioned me to paint the lilies and the butterflies on this mirror. It now hangs majestically on her dining wall. Will show you the pic as soon as I get it photographed.

And finally my current favourite piece... a still life drawing inspired by Kingsley. I find it very difficult to depart with this one... Lizana commissioned it as a gift for her friend....

And so that's it for now my friend... check me out later if you may... I need to go back to my studio and paint some more for others... ;( that's it for others... can't paint any for myself yet... have a good day... cheerio...

A long overdue story ... hehehe

I've been busy... and lazy... and been under the weather too... had the writer's block and a 1001 other stuffs running through my life lately so much so that I literally crawled through the days... *sigh* Every now and then I signed-in to my blog.... stared at the screen... only to sign-off almost immediately.... Oh well that's history for now hehehe...and hey... I'm back.... yup!yup!yup! so here goes... updates from the past muahahahaha... as far as memory permits...

We had a another workshop last July 19... yup! that long ago!!!... at Bistro Saloma, Jalan Ampang organised by Laman and Puspanita Ministry of Tourism in conjunction with Flora Fest 2008. It was a huge success with 69 participants! Never had such a big group before... and oh! this time we had 6 males, one of whom was only 10 years old (err...I think hehehe...but I know he's below 12 because his 12 year-old his was there with him!) ... a very enthusiastic chap he was hehehe. As usual Aniza, Zaitun and I mastered the helm with Shikin to help us out... we just couldn't do it without you dear Shikin...

It went well from 9.00am - 5.00pm. The pics below speak for themselves... but at the end of the day, we were all pooped dead tired... ( I know I was...age catching up with me here *sigh* )... but definitely happy and satisfied judging from the enthusiasm showed by the participants. Thank you all... and that's the last of the workshops by Laman this year. There will be more next year... InsyaAllah... this time probably catering for the intermediates instead of for just the beginners.
