Here are some pet paintings (original photo’s then final paintings) by Portrait Xpress artists. Certainly the original photo’s are good… but you can see that the Paintings make a great gift/ memory! And the beauty of paintings rather than prints, is that so many alterations can be made, up to the person who comissions the artwork.

Have a great day.

notice I didn’t say exhibitions. Exhibitions  here are often dull as dishwarter in my opinion….. due to the fact most people in Hong Kong care little about culture, and the government caring even less….

However, do keep an eye out, for shows and events here, as they do occasionally have some good stuff there! A case in point are the 2 events below (actually see here they do have more talks, if you can speak cantonese or mandarin chinese). These are both saturday afternoon talks in English there. I hope you can make it-  enjoy!!
