When we lived in Singapore there was a great place near Istana Park called My Art Space which offered painting lessons. After talking with the NUS President Chor Chuan Tan about his paintings, and how he takes painting lessons, I got inspired. If Chor Chuan can fit art into his schedule – surely I can! So I enrolled in painting lessons at My Art Space (http://www.myartspace.com.sg/) – and learned a bit about acrylic painting. I had worked in oils when I was a young person but the acrylics are easier to work with and dry fast. So I started painting again and managed to find a day a week (on average) for art lessons.
Since coming back to California I have set up a small art studio in the corner of our kitchen. It has great natural light from our California sun and is a nice way to create in the middle of a busy schedule. I have managed to do several more paintings since coming back to California and I look forward to focusing more on art in the coming months and years.
Here are some of my recent paintings done in Singapore, and now in Aliso Viejo, recently. Enjoy!
