I am sure everyone had enjoyed learning to paint roses and garden scenery. Even though they are lacking of time to finished the entirety of the project but at least they go home with some knowledge and experience. Hope we can do again in the near future. At the moment, I feel very tired of the day trip and my voice is not coming have to go on a silent mode today...hahaha!!

Goose Door stopper

I have done this project many times. Everytime I paint it always come out different in terms of colours and design on the body. However the eyes always look the same. It is important for you to make sure that the eyes are painted correctly otherwise they will look like they just came out from a horror movie.

Morning glory placemats and coasters

I was requested to paint 10 placematts and coasters with morning glory design not too long ago. The painting process had dragged on forever since the background take most of the time and blending of colours of the morning glory also becomes a bit of a chore. I just hope the customer will appreciates all these effort in getting it done. The size of the placematt and coasters are a bit different from the usual.

Green Birthday Greeting cards

A company had asked me to create birthday cards using the old diskettes as gifts to the employees who celebrated their birthday in the month of January. A very good idea to support the green environment.

Student from Penang

Perhaps some of you may have watched the broadcasting of TVSelangor yesterday. Everything went behind schedule due to heavy rain and traffic jam yesterday morning. Nevertheless I had my embarrassing moment during the show which I don't even want to discuss or watch the replay of it. After the broadcast I managed to teach a student from Penang two projects. It seems that she can't wait for the workshop on the 23rd Jan. We are also exchanging coughs with each other ....a bad bug flying about these days.
