Merry-go-Round: Summer

It's time for another ride on the merry-go-round! Jump on and join a group of 10 artists/crafts-women as they link around the world and tell you a little about their lives in art and craft.

This month topic is: Summer

I am living in a tropical small island country of Singapore. It is always summer through out the year. The tree is green all the year and it is hot and sunny all the time.

I remember when I was in China, summer is the season that I like very much. I can wear pretty dresses and feel so flexible with my arms that they are not inhibited by heavy jackets.

But in Singapore, all these surprises and different feelings brought by seasons are lost. I feel the same all the time. It is good and bad. The good is that it is so simple, we just wear the same set of clothes all the time. The bad is that we lack the experiences of seeing snow, ice and falling leaves of trees. But, nothing is perfect in life anyway.

For those who love summer, I brought you my laptop skin "Late Summer Collection".

You can see how the painting is framed as the follow:

Lavender Flower Garden Original Watercolor Painting

Levender has most beautiful purple hue. If you like purple and would like to decorate your house with some purple, levander is the one of the good choices.

If you use dried levender flowers, even after many many years, it still has the wonderful smell.

Baby also wants to paint. She grabs everything that I use and only wants what I use. I gave her different tubes of colors, she refuses and wants to have mine. Haha..

Size: 6.5" x 9.5"/17 x 25cm

The Kiss Very Large Laminated Print

I just sold one Large Laminated Print (LLP) of "The Kiss". It measures 27 x 35"/70 x 90cm. You can see how small the 8.5 x 11.5"/21 x 30 cm Spring print is comparing to the LLP.

Please see the smaple image to visualize how it looks.

The print has a sticky side that you can stick it to a hard-board such as gatorboard. You peel off the paper attached to the sticky side. If you leave the paper on, you can frame it as a normal print. Better than normal print, it is laminated which means it has a protection layer to allow you to clean the print with a wet towel.

Yellow Flower and Bird Original Watercolor Painting

Picking up my watercolor again today. I used to use very bright colors and now I try to use soft and delicate ones. The problem with soft colors is that when you paint the background, the contrast is gone and it is difficult to get an attractive painting.
But I like the whimsical effect of soft colors and would like to explore more.

I haven't put all my watercolor paintings in my store yet. But this one is there. I try to put them gradually.

Size: 9.5" x 6.5" / 24.5 x 17cm

Summer Flower Prints and Laptop Skins

If you are familar with great Chinese painter Wu Guangzhong's painting, you would be familiar with the beautiful black lines he draw with Chinese ink. I like black lines.

This is a simplified version with less flower from the previous Summer Flower. The lines are more dominate in this painting and they are really beautiful.
I made a print mounted on canvas.

LET Life be Beautiful Like Summer Flowers Laptop Skins and Prints

LET life be beautiful like summer flowers
and death like autumn leaves.

Guess who's poem is it? It is by my fariorte poet Robionathan Tagore. I was thinking of paint something for summer for quite a while. Although it is summer all the time in Singapore and I don't feel the heat (because I am used to it), I try to recall the feeling of the summer when I was somewhere else. I looked out of my windows and there is a huge tall tree full of pink flowers. The beautiful poem "LET life be beautiful like summer flowers" jumped into my mind.

It's so wonderful to live as beautiful as summer flowers, at least once in your lifetime.
