on the way in or on the way out?



.......
oil on board, still a work in progress...this will take much longer than expected
........



today will be my third day at the gallery.
it used to be the gallery that i've wanted to work in
many years ago, and now, five years later, i'm finally here.
i've given up a good job, good salary, good bosses and friends to look for that path that will lead me to what i wanted to become....
not that i'm not happy,
but i do hope someday, instead of working at the desk of the gallery,
my paintings will be hung there on the walls.


i must remind myself every now and then,
especially when caught up in the background works of art exhibitions,
the reason for joining an art gallery
and to not stray from that and to continue with improving my own paintings...


as always,a lot of 'what ifs' in my mind
what if i become unhappy here?
what if i cannot get along with the owner?
what if after this, instead of feeding my passion by working here, it will be wiped out? like how it was like for me when i joined an advertising company when i first started work?

ah...i think too much...

something on my mind



though imagined, i hope the eyes were able to convey the luminosity that i wanted to achieve...
....

i've been painting in the toilet and really...i do feel like moving back to my own place....but is it worth it? just for the sake of having a larger and private place to paint?

not that i really mind the toilet space, but it's the lack of fresh air circulating...
