P/S: I'm enjoying my last few days with my family in Malaysia, going to fly back to Maine this Saturday. Miss my studio now and soon, I'll be missing my family and friends.

Portrait of the maternity painting I'm working on; now waiting for refining and adding cherry blossom after I return from my trip in Malaysia.

Off to Malaysia now โœˆ๏ธ My studio will be this quiet and peaceful the next few weeks, no jazzy Bossa playing or the smell of oil paints. I'll miss painting for sure but I have my sketchbook with me, great time to generate ideas ๐Ÿ’ก

I have to pull out my 'Cerulean Blue' paint tube under the drawer for the lovely dress she's wearing. While the background is different from the reference, I try to keep the colors of her clothes as close as possible and keep the ground covered in snow; because - first, that's her choice of color; second, I want the painting remind the day of our photo shot, she wore such thin layer while we were still surrounded by snows in order to preserve the memory of her pregnancy and her baby bump on the family photos and this painting.

P/S: This is my friend's maternity portrait painting and the baby was born three weeks ago ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿปโœจ

Just me and my #workinprogress in the studio. I'm flying to Malaysia next week to visit my family, no painting until the end of May. Online store is temporary unavailable until May 29 but website is alive, you still can contact me for any inquiry and I'm still active in Instagram too ๐Ÿ˜ now I'm getting excited with the trip though the long haul flight is tiring, more than 24hours.

Sometimes, we need to close our eyes and keep our minds silence, to find the light in our heart that lead us forward the right path our mind conceive.

Did a small study for the painting; yet, everything will be different. I'm going to add cherry trees full with blossom at the background of my friend. She hopes to have maternity portrait under the blossom but the weather only turned warmer after her delivery. Hence, I'm not only want to bring out her beauty and effort as a mother and woman in this painting, I also want to fulfill her wish ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป

I'm still working on this piece. The figure is a little too dark, the surround is too bright, a big 'surgery' need to be done to fix the painting.

Putting down the first layer for the portrait of my friend. This is the first piece of an exciting project I'm starting now. Going to share more with you when it's done ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป

I'm starting a new drawing while having these lovely fresh flowers surrounding me, scented my studio.

The story isn't about reading this painting but I'm sharing the purpose and intention I put in this work and the composition. So, why did I painted the golden stairs around the young girl in nebulous forest? Read my latest journal entry for more. Go to link in profile and navigate to Journal in menu.
