Monthly Archives: February 2010

I started this painting on 14 February, it was the first day of the Chinese New Year in Singapore. We have many tangerines (Mandarin Oranges) at home, so I painted this painting.

On that day, it was also a Valentine’s day, we had roses at home.

This Sunday, children of Sunday Dhamma School at Sri Lankaramaya Buddhist Temple practising Chinese New Year Song. Here Sri Lankan children can sing Chinese songs and Chinese children can sing Sri Lankan songs. They were invited to perform for Lunar New Year Celebrations at Kolam Ayer Community Club that evening.


I started to paint roses and other smaller painting last year to show my students how one could approach the subject. I painted a few roses paintings, that had been acquired by one of my student who had private lesson with me. Here is a rose painting that I painted this year.
