I have been busy painting. This is the second in my botanical painting series. Gisele the Pink ginger in acrylic on canvas. Two more to go in this series 🙂
Have a weekend filled with pretty things 🙂
Percy the Penguin has been in hiding for a while now. I remembered him when I was going through my files. I developed Percy a couple of years back for a proposal for a kid’s show. If you follow my blog, you should know by now that I love animals, hence a penguin character is not surprising! Percy unfortunately was shelved but I think he deserves to be part of the Bulan animal farm.
It’s about time I take him out of deep storage. What do you think should be Percy’s backstory?
Here is one last group photo of my little babies before I send them to Shop Howard for adoption. I’ve sold Bao Bao and butterfly, so actually only 3 left to be adopted. It is really hard to let go of my first set of paintings. I don’t know if it will get any easier. I hope so. I hope they do go to good homes.
Since I finished my sketch of the day challenge, I’ve started painting again. I started this ages ago but never finished it until now. This is the start of my botanical series of paintings I’ve been working on.
Petai is a local bean which is an acquired taste because it has a really strong taste. I love it but it makes me smell after ;p
I’m on the final leg of my sketch a day series. This one is of Straits Collection Residences on no 93 Armenian Street, in the historical George Town in Penang. The monsoon season is setting in, so there will be less reason to go out. I’m looking forward to staying at home to develop my sketches that I’ve been collecting for the past year. Happy Sunday x
I have guests staying with me so our routine has been to pop down the road for some food at the breadshop. They have a fantastic selection of breads and pastries, and the best thing about it is I can walk there 🙂
Happy weekend all xx
I’m really enjoying making patterns out of my sketches. This is a pattern of my Easter Lily sketch.
Today I finally got to see my chair fully upholstered as a finished product. I went to the National Cancer society office to check out my Chair for Chairity, a cancer awareness campaign organised by National Cancer Society Malaysia. My chair and the other 14 fabulous chairs by Malaysia’s top artists will be auctioned off on Thursday 15th May at the Edge Gallerie at Publika to raise money for the cancer charity.
I’m so happy with the end result. I was a bit scared in anticipation but I was so relieved when I saw it.
12 chairs have been designed by Malaysia’s top artists and 2 chairs are by invitation, one of them is mine 🙂
You can read about how I came up with the chair design in my previous post. Click here

I visited the Royal Selangor Pewter Showroom recently and discovered these little treasures. Money in the shape on animals made of tin known as tin currency. Malaya was the worlds top producer of tin and the most common shape was the crocodile, tortoises and elephants.
