靈感來自唐朝仕女畫, 像那尊從山西帶回來的胖女像, 每天看顧著我的小柳樹!
我最喜歡綠色的那張, 但是同學喜歡黃色的 今天從幫華美博物館翻譯晉級為編輯, 真高興有人賞識我的文筆哩~

學點新東西讓人神采奕奕, 接觸到許多其他不同領域的藝術家們
世界真大, 好多學有專精又和善的創意人

上課的老師比我還小, 卻已經做絹印十五年了
有時候想想如果我們不用考聯考, 現在想必也已經成精了!
莫札特如果要考聯考, 絕不會變天才兒童的, 因為他媽媽會逼他去上功文數學, 老師會因為他忘記給媽媽簽聯絡簿而打他手心, 所以就更別彈鋼琴了

Toxic burned gummi bears?

working on the new gummi bear piece for days, I figured out that I can burn them and utilize the melting gummi as adhesive. After 2 days of working on gummis, Turbo the cat lost appetite and threw up some food, while I had nausea for 2 nights.
What is in the burned gummi? I have a theory: Food coloring came from petroleum, so burned gummi contains sulfur dioxide, which is a common pollutant in the air from power plants. But short concentrated exposure to sulfur dioxide "can cause stomach pain, menstrual disorders, watery eyes, inhibition of thyroid function, loss of smell, headache, nausea, vomiting, fever, convulsions, and dizziness. "
oh, my goddess, what am I getting myself into?

No resolution needed.

Most new year resolutions are broken before Jan. 30.
The best thing for liberal minds who seek to break any confinement is : never make resolutions!

Believe or not, most human beings identify with their problems. People carry phrases with them, "I am lazy," "I am too tired to do it," "I am too busy or too poor," "I don't like my wife," or "I have arthritis"...
What is going on in the mind is, if someday I am not lazy or not tired any more, I am no longer myself. If some day I don't struggle any more, I am no longer a real artist.
Therefore what will happen is, one continues to struggle, yet never becomes a real artist. Because real artists don't struggle, they simply enjoy expressing their talents.

If you have a habit breaking rules, don't make another bigger rule to break in order to prove to yourself that you indeed can break rules.
Simply choose what makes you feel free and go do it. When you do what you love, you feel free; when you do what you don't love, you feel burdened. Close your eyes and ask yourself: If money and education don't matter, what is it that I really want to do?

For most artists who suffer with doubts, I have a suggestion. When you love what you create, others will love it as well. Don't mix your expectation from others in your paint. The best way to guarantee a master piece is to focus yourself in it, think nothing else but the work. Like the children playing in the sand box, nobody nor nothing can take you away from it, because you love it too much!

Some painter once said: "Doubt is important. But if it keeps you from accomplishing your dreams, are you meant to be an artist?" I kept this quote with me in the studio.

Is New Year still new when the age is 2007?

spent the holidays cleaning up and organizing the studio, I am ready for a blank new year.
the philosophy of being an artistic person remains a strong interest in the air.
I was searching for "vision board" for an official way to present that picture I cut out from a magazine, on my way, I found Christine Kane's blog, full of nice tips echoing with what I have been reading on "intention" these years. There is a general misunderstanding that artists = suffering, however I see more and more people suffering nowadays because they suppress or hide the artists within themselves. Art=Life, indeed, to create is to bring out life.

I have a lesson to learn, to "Allow" the flow of opportunities. To not force solution nor creation; art is born for myself first, then other elements will follow!
