I attended a 'Hari Raya ' lunch do ' at Tengku Norashikin's house recently and came away rejuvenated and inspired by her decorative art paintings. That lady sure finds time to paint away despite her many family obligations. Of course, I couldn't stop myself from click clicking away like a mad woman when I saw her whole kitchen/studio filled with her works. ( Urgghhh ! I felt so guilty for not painting any new pieces myself after feasting my eyes on hers and have resolved to buck up.................... soon !. )
The pictures below are some of her paintings; I'll be uploading the rest at regular intervals, so have patience ya !
A beautiful piece of Hindeloopen ( Dutch) strokework on a stool. The basecoat was Jo Sonja's Red Earth. Don't forget to note the little bird amongst the floral motives. . An inspiring piece, I should say.
A door stand with fluffy pale red roses
A door stand with berries and daisies
A door stand resembling a wooden barrel filled with bunches of hydrangeas with bows..........
lovely bunch of pansies on a barrel themed base with olive green bows
A welcome sign with poppies, poppies, poppies
A lovely bouquet of roses in a basket weave design and red ribbons to match .......... simply gorgeouso !
This is Zuliana's piece. Couldn't stop clicking even though she was still painting....
Hmmmm..., wish I had this hanging in my house........
This is really a change from the florals..... way to go Shikin ( and thanks for letting me loose in your beautiful house ! )
Oh, by the way , Shikin, I thoroughly enjoyed myself with your delicious feast of ' ketupat and satay ' , my absolute Malaysian favourite. Next time I come, please make my other Malaysian favourite ' nasi lemak ' ya !
Happy reading and painting
