Desperate (House)Wives Trip To Jakarta :P

Recently four of us girls made this trip to Jakarta with the intention to have fun with a capital F! And fun we had! Four days of shopping, concerts (the International Java Jazz Festival) and partying. I think we deserved this break (away from the daily routine, hubs, kids, office, bla..bla..bla) and we really packed it all in within those four short days.
Babyface was superb and we enjoyed it to the max. He really brought us down memory lane with all his hits...hehehe...The jakarta malls were irresistable and we spent our millions (rupiahs) in no time at all. Talk about indulgence! And the food.....suffice to say that I put on a pound or two...

All in all the trip is something that will not be easily forgotten.
I say..."let's do this again girls!" :-D

4 "haute" mommas ready to paint Jakarta red!

our sinful splurge...and this was only on the first day of shopping!

All glam'ed up for Babyface at the Java Jazz Festival.

Lily Pods 1 - WIP

first I sketch the the lily pods...

then i paste some ribbon bits and my Reese cup case.. just for little experimentation

then i put my first layer of paint onto the sketch followed by blocking out the surrounding area

then i put more paint on my lily pods...
This is not completed yet though...there's more work to be done. How this will turn out? I'm not sure. I will post the finished painting when it's done. :)

Dancing 3.

A painting I made in acrylic.. I'm training myself to paint in this particular medium. I find it very difficult compared to oil but I think I'm beginning to get the hang of it :)
At first the painting was neat..too neat that i felt i don't have control over it. That's when I started to smudge it a bit...hence the final outcome :)
