And I’m not just talking about the floral fest but also for me as an artist. It seems that lately, I enjoy painting flowers that captured my heart.
It’s almost like painting a portrait. You really need to observe and understand every aspects that exists on the subject… and feel the contour, the texture… the space… the highlight and shadow.
Anyway, I went to Floria Putrajaya that day and really enjoyed my outing with hubby despite the hot weather. The crowd was not too bad… as we were quite early. A lot of people came with good cameras, I noticed :). Yes, many were enjoying the colorful flowers at every nooks and corners. Some shopped for plants, flower pots and garden needs.
Over at the Bazaar area, things were a bit quiet. Those who were selling clothing, accessories and art & craft stuff were complaining for a slow sales this year. That include the Art Exhibition area- where I put a few paintings with my group of Malaysian Watercolor Artists. It’s either because it was middle-of-the month/ people were there only for the greens, or maybe they were saving money for coming Eidul-Fitr Celebration in the next two months.
Anyhow, I noticed that one of my smaller sized paintings was sold. Yay!
As I walked to the next booth, I met one of Malaysia’s very talented illustrator, Kak Emila :).
After that, hubby and I ventured to the widespread Garden that was specially made for the Event. Let me share some photos with you here…
As were making our way out, there was a show going on in Laman Seni (or Arts Bazaar). My hubby immediately recognized the veteran singer, Shamsudin Lamin singing with a young lady singer (who sang beautifully to0!) on the stage.
After watching his show for a while, buying a couple of matching Batik outfits for us and saying goodbye to another veteran, Pak Sani- the painter; we headed home… heady with sweet scents and memories from the Event.
Talking about painting Flowers… I’m in the middle of creating a LARGE piece for another exhibition by Malaysia Women Artists organized by June Gallery, Petaling Jaya. The show will start in mid August.
Take a peek.
It’s not done just yet…
In the meanwhile, I wish all of you Artists out there, Happy Painting and All the Best 🙂 !
