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!!!!

Avian family :)

I don't really paint animals or any other kind of figurines unless there is a request for them. Thus, this I paint for Yasmin. Actually, I barter trade with her ... my paintings for her grandma's wardrobe ... I hope I did justice to the trade :)

This was painted on a cutlery box

.... and this is for Zoe, her beautiful daughter :)

... painted from my heart :)
Thanks Yas ...

Long hiatus :(

Since the last solo workshop, I had been unproductive. Seemed like all energy had been sapped out from within me ... and to top it all ... the fasting does not help in creating any enthusiasm in painting!!!

Finally last week I managed to get something done for Salmi. Completed her 2 shelves with a local flower, the bunga kangkung (sorry don't know what it is in english hehehe). Made them a mirror-image of the other on the shelves.

Then yesterday.... I finally found the courage and confidence to paint tea cups on her WHITE LACY LINEN tablecloth. Courage? Yup ... there was this nagging fear that I would spoil and mess up the piece!!! ...and today ... it's all done :)) A tea cup at each of the 4 corners of the 6-seater tablecloth.... and if I may add ... am mighty pleased with the result *pat pat pat on the shoulder*

So that's it for now ... until my next bout of painting mood ... have a great weekend ahead ...

solo workshop #5 - just roses

Had another "Just Roses" workshop last 6 Aug 2011 ... this time way up north in Sg Petani, Kedah.

It was the first week in the month of Ramadhan. I was fasting, thus it was a real test of endurance for me. Drove up north around 5.00pm, made many stops along the way at ALMOST all the R&R's ... finally reached Sg Petani at around 11.00pm. Workshop is at 9.00am at the community hall near the hotel, but I have to be there by 8.00am to set up the place... not much rest there....

Anyway ... all went well. It was a group of 9 enthusiastic ladies together with our solo male participant. 10 enthusiastic painters with 3 absolute beginners ... but hey ... we finished way ahead of time!!! 45 minutes to be exact ... it was a good fruitful day. Thank you all :))
