Studio Renovation V

Day 5 – Set up my art supplies, planted a row of plants (mainly succulents brought from home), and started cleaning up.  Hope to finish this little renovation project tomorrow. Before renovating my studio, I sat in on a public forum at my Alma Mater in the morning.  It was about climate change from HK’s […]

Studio Renovation IV

Day 4 – Finished painting the wall, my biggest piece of artwork ever! Time flies when I’m working in the studio, was a little late arriving at fellowship tonight.  Good thing I didn’t miss the programme.  We welcomed a few guest speakers to talk about career, something I’ve been thinking a lot lately.  I seem […]

Oil Painting Class

Completed one of my most satisfying piece of work tonight!  There are still lots of room for improvement, but the result looks encouraging enough that I want to continue practicing and seek further improvements in this ever more enjoyable hobby of mine.

10K Run

Temperature rose above 20 degrees yesterday afternoon and I decided to go out for a run.  Haven’t ran for weeks, a bit out of shape, I stopped running after 3k.  Thought about giving up and head home, but it was still early, so I found a place to sit, rest, and watch some youngsters play […]

Creative Mondays

Went out for an early lunch today, followed by a quick walk at IKEA and some book browsing at a bookstore before heading home.  Started working on an “urgent” design project for my church before ending my day with oil painting class. My creative Mondays is becoming more routine, and life seems to be slowly […]

Receipts

Not too sure why I kept all the purchase receipts of 2012.  The sheer volume testifies the consumerist nature in our society.  I wonder how many of those receipts are from purchases of things I NEED rather than things I WANT. If I’m ever going to make resolutions this year, one of the items should […]
