Fun fact. However much i love dogs, I’ve never ever owned one.

Day no 56 of covid-19 lockdown in Malaysia. We have another month of partial movement control. The only joy for me is to go for long walks after being trapped in my tiny apt for so long. What are you looking fowards to? 🌈 ⭐

Covid-19 lockdown Pet portraits series : Hugo the sausage dog

Hugo the wire haired Dachshund

Hi everyone, today’s pet portrait is is of Hugo the sausage dog. He’s my friend’s dog and my god dog. He passed away recently so this drawing is in his memory.

Dogs and animals bring so much joy to me and I hope you have been enjoying this series. 🐶

I’ve been drawing everyday in my sketchbook since lockdown and it has kept me sane and gives me a sense of accomplishment. The act of drawing is therapeutic and healing, similar to meditation as I have to focus and observe and be in the present for the duration of the drawing. Drawing calms me and declutters my mind.

I hope you will be inspired to start your own creative journey. #BulanCovid if you do so I can drop by to take a look

Stay home and stay creative 🌹

For this, I am truly grateful. Art connects, art brings joy, art heals.

Join me on a creative art challenge this weekend. Draw or write me a poem about your pet or favorite animal and #BulanCovid.

Covid-19 lockdown pet portraits series: Bruno the Labrador

Bruno the Labrador

It’s been 53 days since lockdown. It’s hard to be positive during this challenging time with so much uncertainty in the world, so I decided early on to focus on my own mental health and my art instead which brings me so much joy.

Thank you my friends who have supported me financially with these Pet portrait commissions. It certainly has helped 🙏

Covid-19 lockdown Pet portraits series : Simba the Rhodesian Ridgeback

Simba the Rhodesian Ridgeback

Welcome back to my pet portrait series. I’ve returned to this as I have realise how much joy it brings to people, not just for myself.
Pets are like a family member, sometimes more important than family members because their love and joy to see you is unwavering even during the lockdown.

Have a good weekend 🌹

Covid-19 lockdown Pet portraits series : Lottie the pomeranian

Lottie the pomeranian

Woof woof. How’s your Thursday going?

It’s a double celebration today. It’s a super flower moon tonight and it’s Vesak day, Buddha’s birthday and his enlightenment. Symbolically today brings a lot of changes and transformation. It is a good time to focus on the positive and cleanse all the negative emotions and energy from our life.

I’m going back to a few more pet portraits because animals bring so much joy, love and positivity especially now, during this challenging time, when there is so much uncertainty in the world.

Sketch of the day no 1361 in my moleskine sketchbook : Lottie the pomeranian. 🐶

I’ve been sketching every day since lockdown. I hope i can inspire you to do the same. We cannot control what is going on outside, but we can improve ourselves by putting in the time to practice something every day.

Covid-19 lockdown Gratitude flowers series : Giant Amazon water lily

Giant Amazon water lily

We are all like the bright moon, we still have our darker side ~ Khalil Gibran.

This drawing is in honour of ourselves on the super flower full moon.

For 50 days, we have been under lockdown in Malaysia. It has been a valuable time of self reflection, time spent in my head looking inwards, not always happy moments, not always easy moments, but one thing is certain is that I have made it through feeling stronger, grateful and blessed for the life that I have.

Sketch of the day no 1360 in my moleskine sketchbook : Giant Amazon water lily. Waterlilies  are symbols of rebirth and transformation.

I wish and hope that we have all grown from the world’s darkest 50 days.

If a little dreaming is dangerous, the cure for it… Is to dream more, to dream all the time ~ Marcel  Proust

It’s covid-19 lockdown day 49/56  in Malaysia.

Sketch of the day no 1359 in my moleskine sketchbook: Queen of the night tulips for Mariana

I am so blessed and thankful that our paths crossed in Provence 7 years ago. Thank you for your hospitality for letting me stay at your beautiful home and sitting me down to give me the best advice on life and art. If we didnt meet I don’t think this sketch of the day would even exist and i wouldn’t be the artist I am today. Thank you for being my mentor, my friend and I am forever grateful to your generous advice and support. Big hugs Mariana, love you 

Stay home and stay safe 🌹
