The Spirit of Christmas

The Spirit of Christmas

Is this the time to share love, faith, hope and joy? What is the spirit of charity? We don't each have a million dollars in our wallet. But we can help in a much bigger way. As once said in a movie, "pay it forward!" :)

Draw A Dream

Draw A Dream is part of the Youth Expedition Program 2010 held in Chang Zhi, Shanxi China from 10 to 26 October 2010 where Cale and sixteen friends from various backgrounds volunteered to teach at two local primary schools.

This drawing activity, immensely popular amongst the children, is a remarkable platform for everyone to share and express their views of the world and themselves. A total of 208 children participated from the two local primary schools.

In aid of the Singapore Children's Cancer Foundation (CCF), the Marketing Institute of Singapore (MIS) organised a charity dinner event on 27 March 2010.

January - March 2010 Issue of Tribute (PDF, 5mb).

(Water-colour & mixed medium on canvas, 70cm x 91cm)

This painting is inspired by the following quote by Nichiren Dashonin, a Buddhist monk:

"Plants and trees are withered and bare in autumn and winter, but when the sun of spring and summer shines on them, they put forth branches and leaves, and then flower and fruit. The withering fallen leaves and changing hue of autumn in this painting signify the state we are in before attaining enlightenment and rebirth. The trees will be bare soon but hope abounds as the promise of spring and summer awaits".
