Sky

This is Sky.

She is naked and free to be herself.

It also like the sense of self.

She embark in a journey to soul search

who she is and she arrive to accepting all her flaws.

She has a veil covering her nose and mouth like

she’s delicate and feminine.

Sky has a symbol on her neck and chest of

the true self always living within her.

 

Reminiscencing…

0909141633bToday I took out my paintings. I was thinking how long have I been painting. It has been 16 years and I own 73 canvas. I have them laying out to see how much I have progress and grown through out the years. I scan over to the corner of my living room where I usually paint and saw paint marks on the wall that when I understood that corner is my art studio. I took out my paintings because I was having a conversation with a friend of mine. She was telling that I should try to sell my art and show my work to an art gallery. I was thinking back when I started to paint and didn’t believe that I was an artist. I thought who do you think you are. It was something really hard to admit all those years. I had to let go of many layers of pain and fear to finally say I am an artist. Maybe it is time to show my pieces and sell them. I love every single one of them. They have been with me every step of my journey through tough and happy time. Remembering where it all started has brought happiness and joy but I’m also looking forward to what new projects is next to explore.

Shadow Dragon

Last month, I got inspire to make a black and white painting. It is called shadow dragon. I wanted to do shadows on the white painting but something came alive on the canvas so I decide to see what came out of it. It turn into a water dragon. The head on the right side with ears and the tail is at the left side. I use paper to give it a texture style. I seem to like to touch my art after it drys. I guess its the kid in me wanting a hand on approach to art. After I spend a week doing this one, I made two more.

Last Weekend …

Last weekend, I was able to do some painting and I was as carefree with this one. There was no direction as to what I was going to do with it but I was skeptical with how I was starting it out. With all the playing around with my art journal, I took what I have done before and turn into beautiful art work.

Junk Art

0212131300b

I love to express myself with art. It calms me and gives me joy in creating something with paint and a brush. I let myself be as creative as possible and go beyond I’m willing to take it.

I would like to do some projects to create and show you how to use simply ways using stuff you have around the house. It can be fun, freeing and joy able for those who don’t know. Let me show you how to create art with stuff you have laying around the house. I use stuff from advertisement to mail envelopes. You really don’t need much stuff to begin exploring how to let go and just create. Form of expression comes in so many different ways. I love it when I can find a piece of paper and incorporate in my art.

It just a matter of letting go of the rules on how it suppose to be and letting your inner child to step up. The purpose is to get start in creating something without worrying about what it going to look like and enjoying the moment of creating something with yourself.

You can start with looking around the house and getting stuff like cereal boxes, use envelopes, pieces of paper, glue, acrylic paints, brushes, and items like cups, bottles or caps to use as circles. Today is my birthday and I want to do something different to share with others who want to be creative but don’t know where to start. Like this canvas I just paper, plastic card, paints, and can. I can show you to make this with just using cereal box, paper, bubble wrap, plastic card, and drip paint.

Its taking a few minutes of your time to try something so in two days I will post my junk art project 1. Come and join me for a little creating and exploring something different.

Looking through windows

Don’t you ever feel like you are looking through different windows?

What I mean is life gives you different options to pick from and you get a glance at them before choosing. I feel like this for the coming new year and I finding new things I would like to experience in my life. This is what this painting remind me of when I look at it different opportunities. I trying to do something with paint and water. I wanted to add more but I felt it didn’t fit but if I did it would take way from the beautiful colors.
