Rice bucket for CNY

This is a rice bucket that I have painted for a customer who wants to use it for CNY. I really like it since it reflects the vibrancy of the festivity. The customer specifically requested for 9 koi fishes on top and cherry blossoms around it. Eh, Amcorp Mall is a bit quiet today......why everybody oledi in the festive mood and no one wants to go to work. I am thinking of closing the shop on the 1st day of CNY unless there some people who wants to come for visits or lessons.

Painted items for CNY

Chinese New Year is not too far away and there are so little time to paint for CNY. I only managed to do two pots and a carrier so far. Still yet to paint a rice bucket for a customer. The carrier is to put cookie jars. The pots to put house plants. I was thinking of painting a biscuit tin to put kuih kapit and a wooden fruit bowl for putting in oranges...but now has to abandoned the project since I'm a bit busy with painting for wedding door gifts and promoting my book.

Cake painting 3

I make a layered cake and fondant again to experiment with my cake painting. This is just trying to gain a bit more experience in handling the paint. Have yet to find a better one then the one I'm currently using. The more you do the more things you discover. It means a lot of cakes to be eaten which leads to FAT!!!...hahaha!!!

By the way, I will be doing a demonstration at MPH KL Sentral on Sat, 7/1/2012 at 2.00 pm. This is to promote my book. If you are around the area, please drop by.

Candle Holder

These candle holders are supposed to be painted for Christmas but unfortunately it came quite late. So I have decided to paint it in greyish blue and soft pink roses where you can still use it for decoration during the non-festive season.

Art is for everybody

I have been teaching students of different level and different ages for many years. From a 13-year old talented student learning Folk Art to a grandmother learning to paint on a jumper for her little grandchild. It has been always interesting to watch how they built up their skills and enjoying every minute of it. Art always brings moments of happiness to everyone, even to those who are unfortunate. Watch my OKU student on Bersama Mu TV3 at 8.30 pm on Wed, 4/1/2012. Perhaps it may inspire you also.
