Solo in Penang

Pulau Besar, Mering -- Sunset 110 x140 cm,, acrylic on cavas, 2007

This morning, the lorry driver came to pick up 29 pieces of my paintings for my solo exhibition at A2 Gallery in Penang.

Now, my studio feels uncluttered, spacious...empty...a far cry from what it was just days ago when I was running around to meet deadlines for the exhibition!

People always say that it's easy being an artist, but they don't realise that there's a lot of work going on besides painting and "seeking inspiration."

Anyway, the exhibition will showcase pieces from my trips to Penang, Mersing, Perhentian island, and Redang island. The exhibition is kind of an expansion from the one I did early this year at Alliance Francaise. Besides works in oils and acrylic, I have also developed some paintings using pastels on paper. They are sketches developed from my studies of some Penang landscapes at Gurney Drive where I stayed.

The exhibition, "Lights on the Water," will be at A2 Gallery in Bangkok Lane, Penang, from 1-20 May.

If anyone happens to be in Penang during that time, you are welcomed to view my works at the gallery. I will be going up there myself for the launch on Labour Day.
