Autumn Leaves

Quote from Yana, 'Autumn is a second spring where every leaf is a flower'. So true. These leaves I painted are as colourful as the flowers in springtime.

Autumn gardenTreasure Chest

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!

Table accessories

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.

Art inspiration from India

India, beautiful places I have seen, history that I learned and different adventure I experienced. And a lot of art inspiration indeed.....

From their beautiful silks and gemstones, paper mache ornaments and household decor....

.... to the buildings in Jaipur and Agra, the details on walls and ceilings of Taj Mahal and Amber Palace.....

..... to the landscape and scenery in Kashmir. They are all so beautiful.

Enchanted Forest

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 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.

Every one with the completed project.

Busy in class....
