Red for IF (A corner of a past...)

When I read that the topic for the week is red,
I immediately thought of sharing this very rough sketch that was posted a few posts ago....
I love red, not just any red, but old dark red....,
on anything except on myself (I'm always in black!)...
so red is almost always visible/prominent in my illustrations/paintings....
I'd love to illustrate/paint a new one for this topic
but I don't think I'll have much time to do so this weekend....
(brown charcoal and Photoshop)

Superhero no more?......


...I always wonder why, almost all fairy tales ends after the hero and heroine gets married.......

My latest painting....my new work area at home...

click on the pix for a clearer view
a glimpse of my new work area...
my work room is now in the hall area of my apartment and I actually felt better working (painting/illustrating) from the hall rather than being confined in a small room.
Can you see my latest painting here?.....
I would love to show the close up of it but unfortunately when I viewed it from the Mac in the office, it looked really dark...and blurry....well, I might take another pix of the painting and post it here later.....It's acrylic on canvas board, the size? as it is from the pix....do click on the pix above to have a clearer look...
(oops....my boss just called me on my mobile, all the way from London, to discuss about the work schedule I proposed the other day.....sigh....)

Hello Courage....

The first piece for 2007, my eighth acrylic painting....
Untitled...
Acrylic on canvas textured paper with sprinkles of silver dust all over
slightly bigger than A3 Size
........................
A few days ago, I was sorting out some of my old stuff left in my parents' old house
and found this piece of paper,
torn from a very, very old book...
I took this page out at that time (maybe 7 years ago) for the words inside....
and today, even on the first day of work for the year,
I've already witnessed tears, anger, dissapointments, fear.....
and I suddenly remembered that piece of paper with the following words inside....
Lord,
When tensions build up
on the job
and pressures at home
begin to mount
and life becomes
almost too much to bear
I sometimes get scared
I get the urge
to run away and hide...
The next time I waver
or grow faint-hearted
help me to stand firm
that having found
the source of strength
I may reach out to others
who may be
just
as
scared
as
I
.
.
.
A Prayer For Courage....
taken from a book of poems, but I'm sorry I cannot remember what the title was....
