Always Be Thankful

"A thankful heart is not only the greatest virtue, but the parent of all the other virtues.” - Cicero

For Christians, the Olive tree symbolises 'Hope'. In the Old Testament a dove returns to Noah and the Ark with an olive branch, a sign that land is near and the flood at an end. It is also an evergreen and can thrive in all conditions, the average age of the olive tree is 800 years old!
Served up next to the olive branch are a heritage set of 3 rice bowls - the first is a reinterpretation of a Straits Chinese blue and white bowl. The rest are re-imagined blue and whites.
May you always have an iron rice bowl!

Artist Jane: My sister dabbles as well and this is her watercoloured olive branch!

Me: Artist JTMUSES: My work is inspired by glimpses of the Good Word, the everyday small things, a bird in a tree, our heritage, notes of nature and my clients (e.g. Chinatown Heritage Centre, Joo Chiat/Katong Visitor Centre, MediaCorp and Singapore International Foundation).
