Rutland Waters Bird Fair 2019 UK

A lot of rain, a lot of birds, and wonderful people!
A great event over the weekend after months of intense preparation. All the efforts paid off.
My art stand Borneo Artist YeeTing Wong was voted by visitors the Best Stand Award 3rd place in the Art Marquee. What an honor!
All the beautiful comments and reviews on my artworks from everyone really made my days at the legendary Bird Fair.
Bravo to all the lovely and talented fellow exhibitors that made this show such a successful one, year after year.  A 'new kid on the block' like me has got lots of kind support and warm encouragement to make it possible.
 The Bird Fair organisers, passionate people. Can't imagine what an amazing team of birders it takes to make this event such an awesome and great one.
I have contributed to paint the Arctic Tern on the annual Bird Fair mural that will go on permanent display at the world famous Fair Isle Bird Observatory once it is newly-rebuilt after a devastating fire on 10th March 2019.
 Still smiling, I will continue on to create amazing artworks from me for you, my old and new friends that love nature and art. In fact, the sweet little girl in the neighboring stand said I win the Smiley Face Award, because I am smiling all the time!
My most supportive partner, family and dearest friends in Denmark, Malaysia and others that are living in all parts of the world shared the same joy and excitement.

I just think that everything is so good and fantastic, I will start to create a lot more new artworks real soon!

Sea Lions of Coquimbo

I wanted to evoke the mesmerizing, gentle soothing sounds of water, shimmering ripples and harmonious atmosphere of the sealions family when they were bobbing contentedly in the harbour of Coquimbo. An occasional dive made a splash! and stirred the tranquility into a whirl of excitement.

Harvest Festival


It always rain on the last day of Harvest Festival, 31st of May. It's raining now. Thinking about the Helmeted Hornbill, a mighty bird in the Borneo rainforest. That I hope the rainforest will remain their home that they can live safely and happily for a long while.

Abundance

In January-March 2018, I have traveled around South America. Last November, I spent one month in Peru.  This Winter-Spring, I have traveled around the world in 100 days.. Abundance is the predictable outcome of the voyages. I offload my first impressions through a Kagu, the enigmatic and characteristic bird found only on New Caledonia. The encounter with a family of Kagu  in the mountain forest is so special and precious. I want to portray the uniqueness of this unusual bird that survived the possibility of extinction. There's only 60 Kagus left in the world in 1992. With conservation efforts the population increased to 900 on New Caledonia.
To me, they resemble hope in this vast and beautiful world, that need care and awareness to be in. By acknowledging their existence, I find mine.

The Gardens of Warton Hall

A lovely way to transpire. Another journey of wonders. Painting on site and staying at this beautiful property, a lovely day is guaranteed.
Spring Symphony is actually four connecting paintings, here it's seen in a vertical display with three of the panels. It's my impression of the freshness and liveliness that Spring breaths into the garden.

How is it like, to live like our ancestors from the distant past?  Continue with the Silent Ambassador imagery, exploring a prehistoric world. It's going to be exciting, back to the wild, back to be the wildlife

Whirlwind in the Whirlpool

The mind did a balancing act:

When I am back from a round trip Bornholm-Copenhagen-Helsingør-Hamburg-Bremen-Bornholm-Copenhagen-Helsingør-Stockholm-Copenhagen-Bornholm over the month of October for traveling and visiting, my head was cramped with the visuls and vibes of the cities..

Easing by painting two small watercolor sunbirds, it worked like a therapy for me!



I was delighted by the decision I made to create my next Bird Connect Paintings.
I was so happy with my Borneo Montane birds, I continue with the Borneo Sunbirds. I let the colors heal and soothe my mind.
The familiar strokes and forms worked like magic, the flow was so natural for me..it made my whole being Glow!

A Summary of Summer

The summer has borne an array of wildlife watercolors, ink drawings and paintings.
-Working from images of the abundance Bornean wildlife and live from the island wildlife, particularly the seagulls' urban and countryside behaviors.

In the beginning I have worked on my 'energy art' - the fish paintings. I enjoyed the simplicity of the theme, whilst indulging in the never ending possibilities of compositions according to the flow of the painting process.

There's also ongoing projects for events mid 2017.

The fruit trees and berries bushes have been abundant in the produces that the locals say this is the sign of a hard winter.

For me, I feel a pleasant sense of ease as the transition of the season brings about a new balanced energy as the day and night shares equal time in hours.
There's a deeper sense of harmony within that is arising.
The mystery of Fall unfolds after the 50mm Autumn rain overnight accompanied by the North Western wind cleared the atmosphere off the lingering dust of the Summer!

Tale Of A Silent Poetry

Featured in SeeHwaDaily News, a national paper.  

English version: Tale Of My Silent Poetry

Existentialism

I like the idea, when came across an existentialist many years ago.
It's a balanced way of being, for me as an individual that is in the right frame when I am existing for my own cause. Nothing is too simple or complicated, but as long as one is free to live a life that is truly of her own choice and responsibility, that is bliss.

Water World

Water Lilies and White Breasted Waterhen -
Have had the images inhibiting in my mind for many years now..
I have been painting waterlilies by my studio house's pool.  It was such enjoyment painting the waterlilies I have planted myself, and always wanted to do this again as it would bring me back to the calm and relaxing state of being.
Simple pleasure, when working is a leisure!

Thoughts on World Wildlife Day 3/3

It's a special day for us - 3rd of March
It's also World Wildlife Day

Wildlife, a theme I have been working on for many years, in small and large scale.
There are many who enjoys a wildlife painting in their home or offices. People love Nature. It is part of us.

The call of nature, summoning my contribution to bring awareness of the beauties of the magnificent creatures that we share our planet with, that their existence is affected by our actions and its consequences.
Extinction is Forever.  We are all linked in the process...Wildlife is a representative of our own future.

Soul of Borneo

Dance and music .
That's where the essence of Borneo lies .
The indigenous tribes of Borneo, all have their deeply rooted traditions carried out through the form of dances and music in rituals of all major life events.
In which the nature and wildlife are their sources of inspirations.

Allowing myself to immerse in their mesmerizing rhythms and enchanting movements, the dancers and musicians of the true souls of Borneo empower my creativity
-Transpiring forces from the earthly ancestry, onto my modern canvases.
