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!!!!

Mimi's OTHER Portmeirion Collection

Mimi came to me with a few Portmeirion plates ... commissioning me to paint the designs on some signage plaques and a tea-box. It was a tall order I thought, since I only have the plates to refer to for colour and pattern guidance .... no notes, no nothing on how to draw and paint!!! Oh well... I had to rely on experience and my sense of colour and the good old photostat machine and tracing paper haha...

Anyway... on the whole... I gave myself a pat on the back... for work well done ... muahahahahaha ... or so I assume hehe ... have a look see below *wink wink*....

Signage to her show apartment ... Beautiful Pottery is the name... a design I adapted from a wall paper border I found a loooong time ago

Pink Parrot tulips (Tulipa liliaceae) leading into the guest washroom

The sign on the master bedroom speaks for itself ... lily flowered azalea (Rhododendron lilliforum) was the choice

A small plaque of harebells (Campanula rotundifolia) to hold keys ... "
must be small", she says..."very small space on the wall by the door" ...

..... and treasure flower (Gazania ringens) on the tea box ..... shouldn't I be happy huh???? ... that's all folks ... ;)) more to come ...
