decorative art - in the beginning

as usual, this morning i was awoken by my 3 year old jumping on me. she was in a happy mood and so was i :) after being satisfied that her mommy is definitely wide awake, she proceeded to watch tv. i was in a whimsical mood so i went in search of some galvanized tins i stored away in a box... perhaps i should do some painting. rummaged through and found a familiar bundle which i had forgotten about.

i smiled as i pulled out my first ever project in decorative art :) this was the first tangible thing i painted (otherwise it was just practicing on art block!) and it must be about 5 years old. that's when i started taking some decorative art classes at a local art shop. but stopped just at the beginning of my pregnancy because i could no longer take the smell of mediums and paints.

also found quite a number of other later projects i did. i've stored most of them away to protect them from prying toddler's hands :) brought out the camera and took some pictures... again. i use to take pictures every time i complete a piece. which was a good thing because i don't own many of them anymore. friends have bought them or they've been given away as gifts. but there are a few (well... quite a few :) ) which i can't bring myself to give away or sell. one being the first piece i made.


it's not much... but it's my first work-of-art :))))))
(faux wood grain background, sunflowers using one-stroke painting technique)


my second project.
(daisies, also with one-stroke painting technique)

after this two, there was no turning back :)))))

this planter was one of the later projects which i managed to sell. this was the picture i took with the old camera. :))))) should have taken close ups ... but i didn't know better then :(

Happy Pimping! :)

  1. You are SO very gifted! Your painting is so lovely -- I wish I knew how to do that! I got a such a chuckle from the "House of Pee & Poo" sign! Living in a house with 7 cats, I completely relate to that type of environment! LOL!

  2. thank you Jen :) that sign was initially for the toilet but somehow i never managed to put it up!

    one stroke painting is not difficult to learn. it just takes practice :) when i sort out my camera woes... perhaps i should do a vlog on simple techniques so that everyone can do some painting :) and pimpin'!
