We are so glad to know a couple who sail all over the world!
Following a career as a fabric artist in the Gulf islands of British Columbia, Ms Barbara and her husband moved aboard their sailing vessel "Lev" in 1998. They have been sailing to fascinating destinations in the South Pacific, Australia, S.E. Asia, Japan, and now in Malaysia, studying the local cultures, customs, flora and fauna. Such locales have provided much inspiration for her watercolor painting. Barbara's woks has been exhibited in Canada, Australia, Japan and Malaysia.
We visited their boat last Sunday evening, and that was a pleasant experience. A big thank you to Barbara and her husband for their warmest hospitality.

Always we like to bring back some key chains from the places we visited, as a memory or souvenirs to our friends. Yes, I received quite a lot of key chains and little fridge magnet PVC from friends when they back from oversea.

We are proud to frame one of the "World's Most Difficult Jigsaw Puzzle". It is a double-sided puzzle, and the picture on the back is a 90-degree rotated version of the front!
Of cause, the frame must be able to display both sides of the puzzle. So, we sandwiched it in between two acrylic sheets and make it stand on the table.

We had just completed a canvas art co-ordination for The Brezza Condominium @ Tanjung Tokong. The Brezza is located close to the Island Shopping Mall and Gurney Drive.
Modern vector art design of dandelion flowers on canvas is used for living area. On the other hand, canvas triplet print with sepia trees is selected for the wall outside the bedrooms.

Do you normally frame your canvas arts? Or you prefer to hang it without any frame surrounding?
There are several ways to frame your canvas.
The simplest way is just directly frame it with frame wood.
Or you may canvas floater to frame your canvas. It is just a boarder around the artwork, provides the minimal frame design.
If you have a little bit more budget, you can have cotton liner surrounding the canvas prior to the frame. Liners are to canvases, same as what a mat is to a paper print. Both serve as border that provides a breathing space and guide into the artwork itself.
No glass or acrylic needed for this type of framing as we already have a protective layer varnished on the canvas surface.
See, does it give you a different feeling after putting on the frame? =)

Another special item added in our framing request -- A Shark Jaw!
This round, we used red velvet as background, as red is the favourite colour among Chinese, means 'prosperity'. Then, an acrylic square box is used to 'frame' the jaw, so that we can have a full view of the jaw, both from front and side.
