If only I could think like Salvador Dali...

I enjoy reading quotes...quotes by famous people in the past. They were all filled with Amazing thoughts and ideologies. Interesting.

Even though it was taken back in the 40s, this piece of work is still giving a mind blown effect.

"Drawing is the honesty of the art. There is no possibility of cheating. It is either good or bad."

Pepper, My Love...

She was one of those girls in school that would make all the boys gone crazy and head over hill for. Yeah, thats Pepper. 16 years of friendship and we are still crazy and laughing at some unspoken jokes. There were so much fun and happiness when we are together. We carried each other through our ups and downs. She may appear to be a little snobbish or proud but her soul is so kind and beautiful. Love her so much. I am blessed to have her as my BFF in my life. :)

I can't sleep...

I am very sleepy yet I am still wide awake. Thanks to the 6 cups of Earl Grey I drank today. It was a crazy Monday and I was traveling around NON-STOP...From Bank to Post Office to Bank again then to a 4pm Meeting and back to Office and then another 7pm meeting till 12am. Total Madness. I wasn't prepared for a Long Monday. So I was really upset and moody. However, I must say that our meetings were all very constructive and it has been a very productive day. I should be happy. Now that I am wide awake, I couldn't stop thinking about things especially my personal safety. I was worried of mid-night Burglary. Burglars that climbed over roof top to enter a house to commit crimes etc. I am seriously scared. I have my teddy bear with me..a metal tripod next to me and a bible next to me. A quick prayer of Safety and thats it. I honestly can't think anymore and decided to leave everything to God's hands. I didn't draw at all tonight... and I feel so shitty. "Please, Lord...don't make tomorrow like today. I need to take a break before my long day on Wednesday. Amen!"

Kueh Bankit

Lately I am totally crazy about the feel of Pastel...I can draw with it almost every night. I realized that i love the texture of it and also the finishing. But to be honest, there aren't many who will appreciate my finishing. So I have to keep practicing with it till I am confident and also skilled enough to come out with a series. :) Here's a glimpse of the making :)

The finished product

My pastel version of Kueh Bankit...
Its very challenging to draw as you need to work on the detail at the same time mastering on the light and shade of it...

Lately I was being approached by someone to draw some paintings for a Boutique Hotel. And they wanted me to explore Black And White using Charcoal. I have never use Charcoal to draw before but I was willing to take up the challenge by exploring into it. So I went to Art Friends to get some art material to work on the request. I got in Charcoal, Pastel and also some light weight papers. For 2 nights, I was exploring this new medium and to my surprise the effect turned out to be pretty cool and I love it. I realized that in life, we have to learn to take up challenges and not be afraid if all fails. After all, its the experience and process that we were after and they will shape us to a better person. So these were the experimental process. Enjoy...
