I haven't painted in so long. I've had mini sparks of inspiration here and there to get my supplies out and just start. But I always end up resisting it. Or I'm too lazy to actually do the work. The motivation in me to do things this week has dwindled down a lot compared to [...]
life trickles down pebbles fallen from the hard places we break ourselves out of. a little bit of everything, scatters the ground, unevenly fitting into place. these pebbles, creating roads to journeys, building homes we live in. pieces of our own identities. these pebbles, i never know what to think, what i'll see or who [...]
where are we? where are we going?
I miss painting. I went through a few photographs from my archive and found these.
cradled in these arms is a young (wo)man's honest truth. birthed from a godless mother and a moral father, their beliefs intertwined, destined to crisscross in the middle. heated were their defeats as passionate as their victories. held in their hands was the compromise of humanity.
when the mood strikes - do.
a watercolor painting/sketch for my mom. she's been wanting me to continue painting and sketching. it was quite fun and im happy with the colors. i've included some photos of some steps of the process as i went along. some supplies i also used: sharpie pen, colored pencils and acrylic paint.
I'm not even sure if what I painted below is a dragon, but it's what I think of when I see it. I started this piece last year and only finished it today. I did a lot of touch-ups on the blue in the background. cnw
my cousin liked one of my paintings and so i decided to paint her one. this one is named after her. cnw
for my mom and dad i sketched a couple of parakeets for one painting and a koi and water lily painting for the other. Happy that they like them and also re-discovering another art skill i enjoy. cnw
hello & goodbye december 2013, what a year it has been... as of late, I've slept deeper and I've dreamed clearer and I've laughed harder. There's really nothing else I should ask for. Throughout this whole year, I've learned so many things; everyday. I've learned about my work, my art, my skills, my capacity to [...]
I created the piece below a few months ago. It wasn't a planned art piece, and when i finished, i noticed it looked like a guy stuck under blue paint. the piece is titled "overwhelm"
they say our lives will go into waves they'll dip down to the ocean floors and shoot up to the stars and ride on a shooting star. and when a toddler points up on a clear dark night, he'll see someone's dream come true. the white spaces in between insulates us from the let down [...]
i painted this last night. i felt like the brush was doing exactly what i had wanted. i felt like every little thing i added worked out and i was happy with all. I wish I took pics as I was adding. I think it would've been interesting to see the progression. cnw
