Back to Class

And so I’ve taken a break.  A long break.  But I am back in Mr Chew Kia Hai’s painting class again.

Most students chose the oil medium while just 3 of us used watercolour.  Oil has brilliant colours as you can see. And the classmates were all pretty good. I felt quite conscious painting in the presence of others again. Everyone was painting from a picture. I was the only one who didn’t bring one so I painted a still life set up by teacher just for me.

But 老师 (lao shi aka sinsei aka teacher) reminded me with a “敢敢的画!” (aka be bold/brave/confident aka cheong ah!).

So Monica, go, go, go!

Mostly green and blues. Lovely!


Gorgeous orchids.


The class at work. Hmm…that lonesome chair and painting is mine.

My shy little still life. I hope it didn't die of fright.
