Hyacinths

This is a depiction of my childhood memories. Hyacinths, duckweeds and water lettuce. These are part of the flora kingdom I grew up with. Ponds such as this house a wide variety of fish, including the Malaysian fighting fish.

I remember the days when I would frequent such places after school hours, armed with a net, to catch fighting fish. Ponds such as this are also where I hang out during school holidays with friends, fishing for perch and gouramies.

This was painted in 2003.
