After 20 0dd years of not in contact (last was 1987 in fact) an old friend managed to get hold of me (thanks to the close knit Samura). Naturally we filled each other in on what has happened for the past years when the subject of paintings cropped up. He was surprised that I paint! To make the story short, he told me he just bought an old 1970 Honda and would love it to be painted on a canvas. So here it is. This is my artistic impression of the old motorbike. I hope he likes it! :)
Though my paintings could be perceived amateurish to the pros, I still take pride in hanging them at various places in my house. Paintings "My S(e)oul Inspiritations I & II" seen here on the wall of my living room.
The best part about being able to paint is, I can afford to change the paintings whenever the room needs a facelift! Voila...a new look, a new feel! :D

I am back painting again. After soooo long. I was so uninspired for the last 6 months until recently after coming back from a trip. I went to a few art galleries and was in awe of their creativity.
So here I am again, one fine morning, picked one colour to start the on blank canvas and I just let the colour flow. Then another. And another. The result is My S(e)oul Inspiration.

I did this quite a while ago. I used oil and no brushes, only my fingers as I want it to flow freely without the struggle to manipulate the brush. The result is as above...flowy and entangled at the same time...with traceable textures....
This painting is now hanging on the wall of my living room.
I did this this morning. I was inspired by a book of feminine drawings and sketches that Bins brought to my house last night. I bought the book right off her that very night...hehehe
It has been a long time since I painted. Since I came back from Perth in fact. I have been very busy with my other "love" since then...hehehe....

I call this Peak 1. Somewhere I am currently residing. The imagery of this painting should give you and idea of how this place is. Though notoriously famous for its past, I do love the quietness. It has been awhile since I last used acrylic cream with knives. So this is it.
