I am happy to meet a customer this morning. He acquired one of my painting. He told me he likes this painting that I did in 2002. I am delighted to learn that he appreciates modern abstract painting as well. I have added this painting and few others paintings in my photos album to share them with you.

These are my newly made 3D art works. I felt that they are cute and lovely. Each piece is handmade and hand painted. I enjoy doing big paintings as well as small art works like these.

I have uploaded 4 small paintings in my Photo Albums.

This is my painting “Beginning to Rejoice”, one of the two big paintings commissioned by Raffles City. The paintings are currently installed near the entrance to the ballroom at the Raffles City Convention Centre, Singapore.

This is a close up view of the painting titled True Master. Painted in 1996. Acrylic on canvas, 62 x 62 cm. The engraving effect on the surface are verses “The wise have mastered body, word and mind. They are the true master. Let go of anger, let go of pride, when you are bound by nothing, you go beyond sorrow. Beware of the anger of the body, the mouth and the mind, master the body, your words and your thoughts.” I like these sayings of the Wise. I also like the simple and white wash effect of the painting. 🙂

My wife bought a board game Monopoly as present for my son. Last night they played the game. I was surprised to see that there were a new electronic Banker Unit and Bank Cards that replaced the traditional money in the game. Players did not need to handle paper money at all, all amount of transactions were performed by the electronic Banker Unit with the Bank Cards, no counting was needed.

The game Monopoly reminded me of a series of Game Board paintings that I began painted in 1994. In that series of paintings, I started with simple gameboard design at the beginning. Then, I painted Snake and Ladders. Later, I also included words in my paintings and started the Wisdom Series. Finally I worked out painting of gameboards with personal meanings. 🙂
