Peel a Tangerine

I love tangerine, it has the richest orange color among all the fruits, and it tastes great too.

That night I was looking for some ideas for creating an interesting still life setup, and a bag of tangerines lying on my kitchen countertop caught my eyes. And here it comes! Hope you like it.

It is interesting to paint the white onion because I found the shimmering colors of the pearl in the whilte onion.

Treasure Hunt

This is a more challenging setup. Though the painting was done in 2 and half hours Tuesday night after a busy day, I had good time painting it. Hope you like it.

After a busy week from work, I finally get back to paint. It's a good feeling knowing that I can always retreat back to my canvas and palette for a moment of peace and creativity after all the hustle and bustle.

One Winter Morning

I went to BayLand to paint this small painting with a crew of people filming me for the Full Spectrum Day (it's the annual event from my department at work, for us to engage with each other, share our thoughts, review what we have accomplished from the past, and look forward to the new year to come). The theme for this year's Full Spectrum is "The Makers". I am so thrilled to be chosen to film the oil painting that I love to make.

So I did this outdoor painting in 1 hour with 6 professionals around me - they managed the light, the sound, the video, etc. They are fantastic with tremendous patience. I will share the video clip with you once it's ready.
