My Workshop at OliveBlue Studio

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.

Roses and lace

Roses and lace, a combination that has always captured one's heart be it when choosing china, clothes, furnishings and even wedding favours, gifts and 'hantarans'.

This plaque I painted recently was inspired from a friend who wanted me to design a long plaque with pink roses and lace.

The laces are from my earlier designs of teapots and vases on a shelf. The roses in this design are not the stroke and blend style. It is painted with shading and highlight all the way. And the rose petals are blooming irregularly, which I think makes it nice and natural. Again, I am happy with this piece. It is also up for sale on Ye Oliveblue Shoppe for those interested to order.

Oliveblue gifts

My friends plan to throw me a party on 4th July! Thats what they told me, but they kept the venue and guest lists a secret. I had to be blindfolded to the place! Its a girls closed party, themed Oliveblue. There were games, lucky draws amongst the itinerary, all organized by Shida and Zu. Among the gifts for the lucky ones are pieces that I painted. It was an awesome party!!
