Back To The Wild

How was 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

The best things are always unplanned. Being inspired by naturalist Nigel Marven's creatures, the veiled chameleon, starred tortoise, paradise tree snake, alligator and tarantula invaded my world!

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

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.

Rainbow in my paintings

'Try to be a rainbow in someone's cloud'
The thing to do, it seems to me, is to prepare yourself so you can be a rainbow in somebody else's cloud. Somebody who may not look like you. May not call God the same name you call God - if they call God at all. I may not dance your dances or speak your language. But be a blessing to somebody. That's what I think.
- Maya Angelou



More Than Hundred Thoughts Of Us

A Commission completed in May 2015 based on my painting series 'Thoughts'
More Than Hundred Thoughts Of Us is commissioned by a young surgeon couple living in Birmingham for their stylish home and in welcoming the arrival of their first child due in June.
They visited my solo exhibition and loved the painting Hundred Thoughts Of Us that was exhibited at the show , which was already sold; and wanted a larger painting for their high wall in the stairway.
I have started the work during the winter months in Denmark and brought it back to   KotaKinabalu & completed alongside another large scale commission.
Then the painting traveled west bound to the happy young couple before the baby's arrival.
It was a painting about love, joy, life and family.

Circling

Summer on the island .
I can try to wrap everything up..
In my circle.
Free hand, 3 seconds, 138 cm in diameter.

The circle is encircled by the force created by the creative energy that pushes the boundary within the boundaries with colors that are rainbows with minute strokes that when combined in the eyes become a major color from the color spectrum of any rainbows;

About Walking On Air

It has been a dreamy 6 months.
Walking On Air, my debut solo exhibition- is a wholesome experience of living out a dream, with the joy of creating, freedom in doing what I love-communicate and express through my art works and paintings.

It flows with the rhythm of my life path therefore a mixture of works consisting various themes & manifestations of styles-
A door into my world that I like it to be colorful, multifaceted and interestingly textured- at least for the moments up till now.

It has been exciting, exhausting, and mind & body challenging.
But I never felt that it was tough, I enjoyed every bits of it. I was so happy that I have realized a dream.
And it was rewarding, with good responses from the collectors.





It is my key to freedom, to achieve my peace of mind - that I am doing my best about what I love, sharing it - & live a good life.

Bornholm-Borneo Return

The name of the duo exhibition suggests, it is about journey between two ends of the world.
Two minds - striving to achieve familiarity in two distinctively different foreign land.
The testament of dedication of artists Jan Hallfors and YeeTing in their life as painters.
The hardship of distance, differences in culture, nature and people, all became part of what is-
the journey between time and spaces fueled the works where the artists are challenged with acceptance by one another or by their surroundings.
The cat, the circles, the house, the hat, the lines, the faces.
They are all familiar subjects.
In this exhibition by YeeTing & Jan Hallfors consisting collaborative as well as individual works, the impression is something "Uniquely Familiar, Yet Different".
A harmonious flow is observed throughout the exhibits.
The core of the artists' wish in search for their ideal existence in the foreign lands.

Almost Plein-AIr


Another unforgetable experience , while painting at the famed Borneo Rainforest Lodge in Danum Valley.. surrounded by 160 million years jungle. 
It was no doubt humid, and at times rainy.
But the view...breathtakingly beautiful and captivating, my fourth visit to the valley was a blessing and deeply rejuvenating after staying in the city for a while.

Everything was Perfect - Perfectly sculpted by nature itself. 
And when I drew from the nature, I drew from it the essence..and spirit. 

The hundred shades of green, or more - I could only felt the coolness and density it represented ; the lively sap green and the minty green when the forest was covered by the mist and smog when the hot and cold air were working their chemistry.

Always a magical moment - when the tropical rain was pouring.

Everything transformed - the river turned from turquoise to muddy gold, the lush green forest turned hazy, the birds were hiding and could not be heard . And when this happened , I took a break from painting and pondered at the calmness amidst the roaring sound of the river and the rain.

Quest II


I have still yet to find out how many fishes there are in Quest II, a painting of abundance!
The fishes are painted with my home-made bamboo brush - something I have started using when I found a bamboo bush outside the window of Strand Vang , the studio in Bornholm, Denmark years ago.
