My Secret Passion

A peek into my secret passion... acrylic and oil painting. I've always been fascinated with the world of art since I was very young. Though I had no formal schooling on art, I was able to nurture my little passion via simple means. During my younger days, I loved spending time at the art section of the bookstore looking at the different paint and brushes. I followed this art guy on TV who would be doing a step-by-step painting lesson every Saturday morning. I found interesting the little field trips to the museum which my school initiated. It was an "on and off" thing because to paint, one needs inspiration, time, patience, lots of space and lots of mess!

When I got older and travelled to European countries where art is revelled and appreciated. It was very inspiring. So when I had the chance to enroll in an art gallery workshop, I took the plunge and signed up for 10 lessons. I had the time of my life! Every time I walked in there and did my painting, I felt happy, truly happy. It's a different feeling that I could not describe with words. It wasn't a cheap hobby. To me, every penny I have spent on art since I was a little girl was money well spent. Just thinking of those moments make me so happy.

So here I am sharing a little bit of my secret passion and the stuff I have made over time. I was ecstatic when hubby sold a few of my paintings -- the mere idea of it was mind-blowing! I was on cloud 9! Never beyond my wildest imagination would I have thought that people would buy my stuff. It was pure bliss making them... it's beyond unbelievable having friends buy them.

Here's a sneak peak to what I have completed over the years... Enjoy!
