Once again, a client has given me another challenging job of painting this chest with autumn garden design. Really needs some research on the design and lots of patience to paint and perseverance to complete it. Guess when the age increases, the painting pace decreases and the mood is unpredictable, Hahaha... however, I still enjoyed it all and pleased when its finally done!
Accessorize! In this case to the table whenever you serve tea or dinner for your family and friends. A simple meal can look so attractive ( and perhaps delicious) with just these simple ideas of decorative napkin holders, teapot coasters and glass coasters.
Enchanted forest I call it. My pet sister, always with so many ideas and imagination designed this cupboard. She wanted me to paint uprooted trees, broken branches, fallen leaves, critters and yet make it a whimsical place to be lost in. That left me in awe! Took me 6 months to put the design together , looking through books, googling, imagining, dreaming etc. Finally this was accomplished. It was a joy while painting and relieved when completed. And double joy when my sister beamed with pleasure as I sent the piece over to her house.
My very first solo workshop conducted at my home, just a little room which I call the Oliveblue Studio.
With very little response ie only 5 students, I still pursued the workshop as the participants registered are very enthusiastic and keen to learn from me and postponing would just dampen their spirits.
Anyway, it was a successful one as they all completed (well, almost with little touches and varnishing to be done by themselves) the project and they all did well producing the Timeless red roses! Good job, Azlina, Shima, Sue, Zarina and Zie.
