Nothing motivates me to do commission paintings more than what is meaningful to clients. I'm pleased to be able to paint on Pepper the doggie based on her 13 photos supplied by the client including some blurred but happy ones. I was told this watercolor work would bring very fond memories to the family. Doggie#32_Pepper is now on its way to Dallas.

Really appreciate everything :)
All ready for the opening tomorrow. Cocktail reception 6-9pm. Plse come by if ur in town. Love to catch up :)
about some exhibits ... The land and space so vast, people so few, nature defines the landscape. Small boats, simple houses, wooden furniture, all passing down from generation to generation, they tell the story of a trusting life and community. Shorebirds enjoy the majestic choir of crashing waves at rugged coastlines. Quiet waters in a brook join in to declare their presence by gushing out immense energy at heights. Most captivating to me is the awe-inspiring sound of silence at dawn that continues to promise a new day filled with hopeful adventures.
Mark the dates, friends! I'm gonna show a new series of oil paintings very soon with my art buddies at Artists Abroad in HK. Everyone welcome :)

Some commission works were delightedly accepted by client! She even picked up one more painting from my series to add into the framed collection. Really pleased to see them go together - as if we were matchmakers :)
Stepped into the studio in the morning to see this finished oil painting by the window where natural light shines in. It's fascinating to spot the sheen of paints looks as though the calm water literally glitters in the sunrise!
Travelling to Newfoundland in NE Canada, I felt so inspired by the nature! I think I'm ready to paint my soul!
“My work this year has been influenced by a recent visit to Newfoundland, Canada. The trip has found my soul resting in the harmony of nature - the rhythmic dialogues between the sky, water and land are simply enlightening and thought provoking ... In depicting such ideas, my hands once again go back to my all-time favourite of simple drawing and sketching in oils with a palette knife.”
I missed my part in April as I was away in US/Canada, but I'm glad I could have my fun participation in painting these walls for them!
Our 7th mural completed at the Duchess of Kent Children's Hospital, Sandy Bay!
