Today is the first day of my second year with My Opera. I like to post 2 paintings of wave to mark this special day. These are new paintings that I painted early this year. I am happy with the effect of the paintings. I hope you will enjoy them. Last year this day (31 March 2007), I posted three paintings of wave at my first post.

3D art – Prosperity Cakes,小发糕. Medium: Clay and acrylic paints. By Jimmy Quek.

This painting has been with me for sometimes. I took it out from my store as there was an inquiry about this painting. I placed an existing old frame over the painting so to see how it will look like with a frame. The inspiration of this painting came from my visiting to the Cradle Mountain, Tasmania. It was very cold at that time. Do you like this painting?

During my first one-man art exhibition in 1987, computer and Internet were not as popular as today. Potential buyers viewed paintings at art gallery or art exhibition and they bought paintings there.

At the beginning of 90’s, people began selling and buying art with the aids of computers and Internet. Friends suggested to me using digital medium to record painting images in CD, but I did not do so. I still recorded my painting images on films and slides at that time.

In 1998 when I was preparing for my art exhibition catalogue of my one-man art exhibition, that was to be at the Alliance Francaise de Singapour, I witnessed the importance of using computer when I was checking the texts and the design of my art catalogue which was to be launched at the exhibition as well as I came to know a friend, Kok Siong, who agreed to help me for the design of the catalogue with his computer at that time.

Soon after the art exhibition I bought my first computer. I started learning how to send and receive email and I bought my first Sony floopy disk digital camera.

I remember the first time I sold my painting via internet, that time I just have to email my digital image to the buyer and then the buyer confirmed the acquisition via email without even a need to view at the actual art work personally prior to the acquisition.

I really enjoyed the positive results of using digital images, computer and email. Since then, I have published my website at and later my Pabha Creation website at:

Now a day, more and more people buy and sell art works online. People view images of original art works online at their own convenient times. They buy art and pay their purchases online via PayPal or by bank transfer.

The patterns of buying and selling artworks have already changed for a long time with the progress and popularity of Internet, digital medium and computer.

I have added some new small paintings in my website for buyers’ viewing, it is at and some exclusive artist pendants at My 2005-2008 paintings are at you could contact me if you find something you wish to buy for your collection.
