Blue and white ginger jars

I have 3 artworks being featured in this augmented reality exhibition in the park. I chose these three paintings because the park is in the heart of Penang heritage zone and this series celebrates my Chinese heritage as well as my Malaysian nationality.

I was going to draw and then I got distract by some gardening that lasted all afternoon, and then I went for a long walk and tired myself out. Luckily I remembered I had this drawing of an oriental pied hornbill in oil pastels on paper that I did last year after my cousin sent me a photo of a pair of them visiting their balcony in Singapore.

The bee came to my balcony but I wasn’t fast enough to take a photo of it. I had toΒ  Google it to see what it was and this drawing is referenced from Wikipedia.
I’ve been really enjoying using the time in lockdown to experiment drawing with different materials.
I might try something new again next week. Stay tuned.

I would really appreciate it if you could follow my YouTube channel for my art videos. Thank you. πŸ’•

Peach face lovebirds

Peach face lovebirds

Happy Monday!
Today has been productive. I finally completed this Pet portrait commission of 6 lovebirds. I needed this to motivate myself to start painting.
It’s been such a struggle to stay in the right mindset to create. The most important lesson for me is to not slide too far down into the abyss. Everyday I catch myself from falling by adding and allowing activities that bring me joy.
Stay safe and stay sane my friends πŸ’š

Into the forest I go…

I love the natural world and going for hikes in our tropical rainforest.
As an artist, I find much of my inspiration from nature.
Our rainforests are one of the oldest in the world and it is home to many species of plants, birds, insects and wildlife.
This trail is a city green lung which is such a gem and is something I am grateful to have as our rainforests are fast disappearing.
Follow me into the forest and fall in love with our jungle with me πŸ’š
