I I don't have a lot of time for myself. I enjoy painting immensely but when can I find time to do it? (Maybe I can cut down bloggig and writing emails! Hahaha.) I have a beautiful and talented younger sister (note 1) who always thinks that she can draw better than I do, which may be true, because I did not tap into my hidden ability until 7 years ago. (My parents couldn't afford to pay for any art lessons when I was grwoing up in Taiwan.)
I took the art lessons because I felt that I needed to find some way to relax and destress. Teaching could be quite demanding and stressful. I really enjoyed the time spent on paingting. The art lessons I took also made me a better teacher to teach my students how to draw at school. I have been running a few art clubs for a few years. I am not the most diligent art student because I don't have a lot of time to produce artwork. I really should try to get back to practise painting on a weekly (or more consistent) basis. New Year resolution? (still thinking....)
Here is one of my old paintings. I called myself a toilet artist. So, guess where I put this painting?
It is perfect for the steel-blue guest bathroom.
My beautiful sister is still single in Taiwan. If there is any single suitor out there who has some interest, please contact me via email (see my profile). Hehehe.... I could be a good sister-in-law, you know. (Wink, wink)
Then I may invite you to see my painting in the guest bathroom. Hahahaha....
