My once-upon-a sacred life

watercolorsLife’s gotten busier, the canson sheets and sable brushes have given way to blinding myself in front of photoshop.

I’m not complaining, its still a lot of fun.. Bless the “undo” button and being able to experiment with multiple versions and picking out the best. I still get to express myself and satisfy the creative calling but I miss getting my hands dirty in paint! It used to be one of the most fulfilling sacred moments of my life I can still recall and feel happy about…

My relationship with watercolors pretty much ended with the O’level exam; it’s sad, for we had hit off so well. The paintings ended up on walls around the house, the paints and brushes fondly preserved for the leisure time I fantasized so often about but never managed to indulge myself in living up to commitments from studies to work to marriage and motherhood.

The paints are cracked and brushes shedding their bristles, there are days I wonder if my hand will quiver, the strokes turn out not-so-deft and the painting end up blotchy if I go back to it after so many years.. but I guess one can’t really unlearn a skill… there’s still hope, I know I’ll bring the sacredness back to my life someday!

    Beautiful. Warm, earthy, calming colours blending with the mystical, the old – reminiscing… Oh, and there’s you beloved green…

    @ pinar – hehe the art teacher had put together the still life, not me.. but I guess the green was the reason I unconsciously ended up posting this particular painting from among the dozens I’ve done so far!

    how about just signing up for a class of some sort – charcoal painting, watercolours, whatever – you’ll have to go and then do it whether you’re in the mood or not…then maybe slowly you’ll feel the tank filling up again.
    babysitting? i know – gotta work that one out.
