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!!!!

Flowers again

Completed three items recently... hydrangeas on a pair of lazy susans for Kak Nomi and a bouquet of flowers on a cutlery set for Siew Bee. Nothing much to really show-off here ... but it felt good to be able to finish something without added stress hahaha

Oh well... I actually lie if I say no stress added doing the cutlery box haha. Siew Bee gave instructions with no specific pics or photos as reference. Must admit... I'm no artist that can just imagine something off-the-cuff ... I need pics and photos. She said she wanted "undefined" wild summer flowers on a red-wine base ... err come again...WILD summer flowers? on a red wine base? ouh ok... gotta do some research now ...

Took me 2 weeks just to mull over what to paint ... anyway... what you see here is the outcome of my stressed thoughts *sigh* I actually had laces on the three sides of the base with daisies and dandelions on the inside of the cover .... but I was soooo relieved that the painting was done that I forgot to take pics of the base and the inside cover!!!!!!

However... this is one job I'm not too happy with as I felt that it's not my best. Fortunately... Siew Bee texted me yesterday and told me that her sis-in-law loved the box. Thank you Siew Bee's sis-in-law ... you made my day :)

To all you guys out there ... here's Nora wishing you a Happy New Year. May 2010 bring you abundant goodness, lots of joy and great health. Take care you hear ... thank you for visiting my blog....
