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. 

Note 1: 
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....

  • We do keep books, mostly comics, in the bathrooms. Hehehe. We do have to relax when in the washroom, right?

    Marriage-seeking is not really the goal but the by-product of this particular article. Hehehe... Just don't tell my sister (Shihhhhh...)

    Imagine when my sister finds out that I am just trying to help. "Brother-in-law Wanted!" Actually, she is a cool girl. All my sisters are. Of course, we have the same genes in the family. (Did you hear the horn blowing?)
