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!!!!

It's canvas this time :)

Sometimes one wonders what goes on in other people's minds ... wonders why there's no sense of guilt or remorse ... no empathy, no conscience. Oh well... sometimes I wonder why I need to wonder THAT in the first place???!!!!  ... LOL. 

Anyway, just a short note on this. A dear friend paints and supplies to a local craft shop her painted decorative items. Each design is painstakingly done, as far it goes she tries to be original, though at times ideas are borrowed here and there but always done her own way. Unfortunately... there is someone out there who bought her items, traced her designs ... and sold those designs commercially as her own!!! It's sad when one does not acknowledge the work of others .... :(

So... what have I been doing? Oh I've been busy painting ... but of course!!. It's just not that easy anymore to write and story-tell my finished works hehe. It's easier to have everything photographed and placed in the appropriate album in Facebook ... yup!yup!yup! So go look see there-lah ;))  Here today I'm going to show-off my paintings on canvas .... not thoroughly original ideas... but I did it my way adding touches of my own here and there.

This was a Terry Harrison original done in water-colour. I loved the whole look ... modified it, added my own potted plants and the bicycle... and did it my way in acrylics. 

.... and this is Ann Mortimer's "Cottage Window" in water-colour. Again the main idea was borrowed but I have added my own personal touches and did it in acrylics. I love both paintings ... it's still not up to my expectations yet, not as great as I imagined it to be ... but yeah! kak Masnah is happy ... so I am happier :)) 

I was told I need to create more depth with shadows and highlights, need to blur out certain parts so that other parts can "pop-out" ... hehe I'm still learning ... slowly making the transition from decorative artist to a fine artist ... amen! I'm self-taught ... read many books .. and not understanding the jargon LOL ... thus end-up painting my way hehehe. Wrong or right? ... hey! it's art! Art is subjective ... lalalalaaaaa

Have a great day people ... more to paint ...
