Today, I want to call upon all internet users and especially DeviantArt users, to spare a thought for the families and loved ones of the missing Malaysian Airlines jetliner MH370 9M-MRO. The families and loved ones will be spending their first Christmas and the New Year's without their lost ones. It is a sad and painful time. Pray that they will have strength and peace to face the future.

(Yes, I realise that some of the families do not celebrate Christmas nor the western calendar New Year.)
It's either a cold or allergies: ruhnny nose, aching joints, tiredness.  Anyway, with aspirin and antihistamine, I feel a little releived. Gonna sleep it off some more.
Will not be doing much on DeviantArt until I get back.

Let's make this quick: There were the gimmicky, the cheap-shot, the halfway-decent, the classically-schooled, and some really nice collectors items.  I mean digital rain falling over a digital picture displayed on a monitor. I mean poems with illustrations on poster card (those are artsy, but not bank-sponsored investment fair stuff, please.)

Although I got invited to the gallery showing Maruyama's acrylic paintings, the best two were already sold. These were each of cute goldfish done in his unique style. Pass.

I spotted the Seki Sumiya paintings which I'd seen 2 years ago, and the gallery featuring her work has increased the prices again ! Two years ago, they asked $3K, and last year, it was $4K and this year it's $5K - hey, that's faster than inflation ! I'm not that stupid to figure it out, and it proves nothing about appreciation of investment.  Pass.

I saw a few typical pieces from other galleries which I've noticed in the past, but I didn't stop to look at those artworks again this time.  I did try the Renton Marine Gallery from the UK, having bought from them before, but the artist I like is no longer selling through them, it appears. Pass.

And then I re-visited New Grounds gallery and printshop's booth, and found I rather liked Jessica Kennedy's #202, an acrylic on pressed wood, which I picked up. New Grounds are from New Mexico, USA, and I hope their version of hot and humid matches Singapore's climate, or else that wood is gonna go kaput on me !

I went back to White Space Art Asia's exhibition area, and quite like Larry McLaughlin's resin-laminated printed miniatures on found zinc. I did request that when he visits next year, for the Gallery to get him to touch up the piece I bought, because there is one spot that needs more resin to stay plastered down onto the zinc. or else the paper will get spotted in Singapore's climate.

(You can tell I am avoiding art executed on exposed paper or cloth media; now I tell you why:-0 the climate in Singapore causes spotting on cloth and paper media, and who wants to spend money on climate-controlled rooms at home, for artwork purchased at the AFFORDABLE Art Fair ? Wrong price range of artwork; they do not justify the expenditure on special climate-controlled environments, is what I mean.  More: switching on the air-conditioning and then turning it off or leaving a door ajar, is the worst thing to do for rooms with paintings on paper and cloth media, in Singapore. The humidity is so high, that water vapour from the air outside the air-con room, condenses on cool surfaces inside the air-con room, including the cloth and paper media paintings. It is the dampness which causes spotting. Professional framers have quietly mentioned to me that humidity-caused spotting is the bane of art collectors in Singapore.)
