Dear friends, 2018 was a busy year for my volunteering at National Parks. However the events held regularly at Sungei Buloh Wetlands and Botanic Gardens kept me much in touch with  Nature physically and in my capacity as Chairperson for Friends of Sungei Buloh.

My passion in painting Nature has not diminished in any way. My biggest ever art exhibition called Beyond Gingers was held in SBG from 14 April to 7 July 2018, with almost 14,000 visitors.  And a Limited Edition coffee table book on this exhibition would  soon be published and made available at Nparks. All proceeds would go to the Garden City Fund.

To round up this year Art in Nature activities, I will be conducting the last outdoor art session for this year on 30 Dec 2018, at Sungei Buloh Wetlands.

We meet and sketch at the Main Hide at the Wetlands Visitor Centre (the old Neo Tiew Entrance) from 9 to 11am on SUNDAY 30 DEC 2018.

You are most welcome to join us for this year end  appreciation of Nature through your creative expression of our beautiful wetlands. You may bring any art materials you have.

Posted here is a sketch ( with a brush pen) from Boardwalk Shelter #3.

Cheers and a Happy 2019 to you, and hope to see you at Sungei Buloh.

15th anniversary of Volunteering at Sungei Buloh February 22, 2017

Took a  walk and settled  down  for 2 sketches at the Main Hide this morning to celebrate my 15 years of helping out at this wetland reserve.

Chatted with Mendis and Raj, and had a meeting with Halilah and Shufeng on coming art and conservation activities for Loyang Sec School. Then hitched a buggy ride to the New  Visitor Centre, stopping  enroute along Kranji Trail to look at salvaging fell tree parts for use as materials for installation art here.

Felt good about having served 15 years already  and thankful for the chance to continue my volunteering for nature here at Sungei Buloh Wetlands.

Jokingly mentioned that Buloh can use my numerous past sketches to chronicle its changes when I reach 20 years of volunteering.

The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but seeing with new eyes..Marcel Proust

When I needed  inspiration to make another sense of a familiar landscape I am reminded of this wise saying by Proust.ImageImageImage
