me and aunty tricky..


a painting i did at aunty tricky's house

 in fact .. i painted her washing clothes area , in a tropical climate like singapore
we often have an area where the maid does the washing.. 

                                    these mannequins add an extra charm to a tropical garden..
aunty tricky had a beautiful shop called blue ginger.

                                           these will give you an idea of her batik style on fabric

     aunty tricky use to teach the ladies or in singapore we call them tais tais..
porcelain art... these are some of her precious ones.. she has kept..many were given away.

Aunty tricky and her magic touch in life.

 aunty tricky and myself enjoy each other's company,,, she is quite a recent friend..
at 89 and fast approaching 90 .. i visit her quite often..
i bring her everywhere i can think of..

she teaches me good chinese ways and she is an artist herself
during her hay days she prints batik material and had a lovely shop
selling unusual patterns on cotton..everyday..
she dresses beautifully
and takes great pain in her appearance

other friends
