Flowers (or, "I did this - part 2")

Since I've had positive responses to my previous art-post, here are some paintings of flowers that were done some time ago.

The ones for SSEAYP 2001 were given away to host families in Japan, Philippines and Brunei. The remaining three were given to friends (our batch didn't complete the entire journey. We missed Thailand, Indonesia and Vietnam). In the off-chance that you have one of the painting and you are reading this post, leave a comment. I'd love to know if you still have it : )

Oh, and if you know the names of the orchids, leave a comment. I copied them from a book but forgot to write down their names.

1996 (May) Flowers
Untitled - May 1996. Watercolour on drawing paper.
This was a still-life study of plastic flowers that were in a vase, on top of the TV cabinet at my parent's place. I remember in was during school term break. For some reason, I took particular notice of the flowers even though they had been there for ages. One of those artist-moments when you have that feeling of "Hey, I think I can draw/ paint this!"

I have no idea who I gave this to.

Must have given this to another PY on the ship.


You know, since Blogger does not allow me to create categories like Moveable Type or Typepad, I was thinking of creating another blog for my art-related posts. Do you know of such blogs? Please leave a url as a comment.
