I have completed two paintings. I like to share them with you. First painting is a felt presence of the awesome spectacle of the majesty and grandeur of atmospheric space, inspiration from East Malaysia. Second painting is an image of joy, offering the prospect of a totally agreeable, happy experience, inspiration from what I saw arround my area at Tampines in Singapore. The motifs of flowers recurs very often in my paintings. I hope to share the joy, happiness and love, and at the same time use such conditions of natural phenomena alluding that pleasure, happiness, joy are of transient nature in life. Hope you like them.

I have completed painting 5 small prosperity cakes 发糕 (Fa Gao, Huat Kueh) this morning. I like the simple colours of pearl for that.

Inspired by foods and things around me, I use clay to make my art object and share with people who like them.
Happy to receive comments from the earlier post. I could understand how much I was able to express my feeling and emotion in my painting via your comments. I welcome you to write your thoughts, memory, poem or opinion, I shall be most appreciative for that.
I did not use any pictorial reference when I was working on this painting. I painted it from the very deep source of my heart. I worked from impulse and feeling… calm, peace, space, sound of silence, night, light of faith, trust and happiness… I take sometime to complete the painting. Though dark colour or black is not always appears on many paintings. I hope this painting would evoke feelings in you.

Lotus is a symbol of purity, joy, beauty, quiet contented, relaxed and happy. This painting has line works of lotus and words on it. I shown this painting to a friend who visited me, she liked the painting. It has become her art collection. Thank this friend for keeping my work.
