Self study



observing one self
is a very humbling experience...

trying my best to not cover my flaws
trying to see who i really am..
be honest to how i really feel...

The few words that hold the whole para...

today, is a memorable day
for the first time, one of my heels gave way while i was finding my way to an art gallery
and you know what?

it decided to give way right infront of an expensive boutique. i looked around frantically for some other 'cheaper' looking boutiques but unfortunately, none was in sight...

i had no choice but to limp right up to the boutique and all they have are heels that are so high that looking at them was enough to cause a recurrence of slip disc.

but i had no choice, and there goes enough of money to buy a few more tubes of oil paints...for a pair of heels that i would never ever consider buying under normal circumstances.

but then again, i should be really thankful that there WAS a boutique for me to get into right in front of me or else i would have to discard the other heel and walk barefooted back to a shopping complex a few blocks away where my car was parked and i wouldn't have continued my journey to the art gallery after that, and i would never have viewed a meaningful art exhibition by an amazing artist. yes, i'm truly blessed.

God must still want me to be inspired....

and therefore...a quick oil sketch before dinner the next night...

A glimpse of WIP



a painting in progress, in my 'studio' (which is the toilet)....


this took me about 5 hours since lunch time yesterday just to reach this stage. although this is my first time painting this big, i didn't expect it to take that long...continued after dinner for a few more hours...and well, will continue again today..i just hope i won't spoil it in the process...

i'm so 'groggy' today...where's my coffee?


update:

i spoiled it....
