Time Out!

Hello friends,

First of all, I have to apologize to everyone for not updating my blog as frequest it used to be. After long days of work sometimes it's just hard to brainstorm thoughts and put it in written words. Furthermore, my little girl is growing fast. Everyday it is something new with her. Today she suprised us by singing the song 'Ibu' in her baby talk version with hand movements and facial expression and forced me to join her. She was hilarious.

As the story for my paintings, long story cut short, I'm trying to find the time to finish the pieces. I have so many unfinished UFOs. Some are finished but not varnished and some are just basecoated but not painted. Sometimes, I yearn so much to paint but my mind and body is just too tired.

Decorative painting should be done in a very relaxed environment. That way, you can concentrate on the details like the highlights, shading and line works. If I were to start a piece, I must have ample of time to do it. When you rush, the results will be dissappointing.

I hope I can get back to painting soon. I have put so many ideas in my painting journal but when will I be able to execute it? That's a question I should ponder....
