this is for a very special little girl who has gone to heaven to be an angel… though we never met you, i know you will always be around to look after everyone… especially the little kids in the family.
practice canvas, the past few days, i kept obsessing on flowers and thinking about my grandmother whom i havent visited for the longest time. i got to see her last march when she came over though.
how she loves to landscape. she was sick the past months.. and i thought to myself how sad it mustbe that she coudnt work on her garden. i planned to give her the blooming since she loves to hang baskets around the house. was thinking of putting it where my grandfather’s urn is. anyway.. my aunt was here a whike ago and she to,d me that she was landscaping and is out in the garden again…. and i got to do this.. finally satisfied with it…
boredom leads to great ideas… i have always been hard headed. i wouldnt even want to take art lessons because i know i wouldnt be able to absorb the teachers words… (not unless he is da vinci?) … lol…. but i read tips. and i was fascinated with ipmasto and textured canvas so i read and made do what what i have.. (at 3 in the morning… and limited supplies…. hahaha…
remember the dried flowers phase? well, its been sitting around the closet ar too long with twigs and dried weeds (not the kind you smoke,. ) well… here it is.. i have finally finally been able to incorporate painting, poetry and dried flowers!!!! (i have yet to practice writing using a paintbrush…but you’ll pretty much guess the idea of a love poem on canvas…. wish me luck and keep the creative juices flowing!!!!
art rocks!!!! 🍸
i succumed to instagram craze!! new audience, reviews and viewers… lol.. for those who have. instagram… look me up.. truelovejunkie
i had a canvas made for a landscape and then, changged my mind. so instead,i places a masking tape in the center… i painted the swirls.. lovers kissing and holding hands in the air or somethign….
i covered it up when i started on the other half… first i made a nude, cover it up, then the story book world.. and probably covered it 3 times… finally, i decided to turn it upside down coz rhe lower part of the canvas is acceptable.. lol…
so i did the hot hatter… (pardon the splatters on the walls.
finally, when im done.. i took off the covered part and loved what i saw…
welcome to my world!!
story book world.. not finished yet but i covered it up..
red. i got inspired by a friend who made the mahjong character red his profile pic in facebook…
i currently have a thing for red wide brimmed straw hats lately.. it drove me crazy the whole week. it consumed my thoughts and nobody can talk to me for a time coz i was so obsessed with painting a hat to my liking. gosh… i think i finally have an explanation of my craziness. lol
sometimes a heartbreak is louder than a beating drum.
practicing shading now… and boy do i not suck?
i tried to make a hot chic but my heart and my soul wanted otherwise. it turned out ar first that he kinda looked like my late grandfather but it scared me and so i tried to tweak it.. he was so easy to draw..
i cherish the time when i am alone.. there is nothing to do but do as i please. this weekend, i barely got out, after taking my so. and his gf to the airport, my daughter also went for a weekend with his dad… i reliah the moment having the whole house to myself..
and this is what i did…
the moon isnt done yet..
acrylic on canvas
acrylic on paper.
and as the pen moved through
the whispers of my heart
the most beautiful thing we have ever made
is to make our love … a work of art.
and the adventure continues… trying to step a little bit more outside the box….
im known to do crazy stuff all my life. but i was scared to do abstract art. when i did my 2 amateur abstract painting, it is because i got bored. i encouraged my friend to paint a beautiful painting (her first) and her work became my guinea pig. being all encouraging and all but at the same time experimenting.. so i did too my own splatter after.. sure beats boredom!!
and this is april’s first work on canvas.. oh how she live for music!!
