persistence






there are signs of recurrence..
for a few weeks now, i could feel the strain on my back and slight tingling sensation on my right leg again...
conveniently, my painting sessions were blamed by others..

but instead of avoiding the bathroom yesterday (where i paint...don't worry, this is an unused spare bathroom) i dragged myself in and spent a few hours at the easel painting yet another visitor of my imaginary world...she must have arranged for an appointment with me earlier on for all i wanted to do is to paint...

and although my back felt worse after painting, my spirit was soothed and calmed...and with that, who could tell that i was actually in pain?

Possession





i wonder sometimes
if the faces that i've painted
had ever lived

i'd like to believe
they must have existed
somewhere...
sometime...

the return of the side view, high-nosed woman





does she not look familiar? she used to appear in my sketches on corner of my books, memo pads, etc...she was never in oil...

last night, i decided to give her a more permanent place...oil on board.

i hope she'll like her new status...and i wonder if you like it too?
