So to reciprocate his goodwill, Pak Zawi has decided to give his order top priority above all others who may have ordered earlier than him. Please don't feel offended if he can be considered to have jumped the queue as Pak Zawi really needed this income to purchase equipments and materials to paint. This sale beside the first sale of the first painting to Zendra has boosted Pak Zawi's confidence to carry on painting immensely. There is no better drug to boost this confidence and spur Pak Zawi on to create more pieces which can be considered as works of art from Pak Zawi's heart. Just bear with Pak Zawi and Pak Zawi will honour all those who have asked for a piece from Pak Zawi. Remember the price will remain affordable and you pay what you deem as worth. The price will increase only with the quality of the frame requested. If the frame is not required, Pak Zawi will accept any reasonable ammount offered and will bear the cost of postage and packing for delivery within Malaysia but the buyer will have to pay for postage and packing if the painting is to be delivered overseas.
The following paintings had just came back from the frame maker. The buyer had requested a good frame and this double layered frame cost RM130 a painting. Smaller or thinner frames could cost much less.
The Pink Water Lily
This painting has undergone some transformation from the earlier work as the backdrop didnt seem to complement the subject. When buying mangoesteen, Pak Zawi is very meticulous and will select only a slightly ripe fruits. This will give the fruits longer shelf life compared to completely ripe fruits. The flesh is firmer too. So when buying mangoesteen, please select those fruits with the above color.
Peace Park Labuan
While visiting Pak Zawi's daughter in Labuan, Pak Zawi chanced upon this clear blue sky with the picturesque white bridge over a mirror like lake in the park. It is really a sight that mesmerized Pak Zawi. So when visiting Labuan, do not forget to visit Peace Park and explore the area. It is so peaceful and serene. Even Pak Zawi's daughter Azini who lives in Labuan didn't realize the existence of this bridge.
The Black and White Kois
The moth can be as pretty as its cousin the butterflies.
The Asplenium Nidus
This fern is called The Birdnest Fern. Pak Zawi's wife love to grow this fern in the house compound. It is relatively easy to grow and take care of. Just water it regularly and it will be very happy.
This cockerel is loved for it's miniature size and beauty. Kelantan is very famous for breeding such birds for its beauty. This bird can be trained to show itself by posing to exude all the colorful beauties of its feather. Being a proud performer, Pak Zawi put this miniature cockerel under the spotlight.
The buyer requested that Pak Zawi paint a cockerel for him because he loves them and has another two paintings he bought from a wellknown artist on the internet.
Pak Zawi went hunting to shoot photographs of cockerel. Pak Zawi shudder at the thought of his painting of a Malaysian cockerel against the beauty of foreign cockerels when displayed side by side.
The above eight paintings together with the Yellow Catleya and Heliconia 2 will be the 10 paintings offfered to this buyer.
I hope the buyer will be happy with this selection for him. Do you want to know who is this generous buyer? Puteri Kamaliah knows and so does Akmal of Wiseup.
