There were times when this is how I am feeling recently. Blurry, overlapping but distinct thoughts and realizations are present. Some of the things that I just started learning about a few years ago, keep on being repeated in other books, resources, and forms of media that I consume and get exposed to. There is … More Art Post: November 2018
There are days when it is not as easy to be articulate. There are days when it is not easy to be restrained. There are days when it is not easy to be understanding. There are days when it is not easy to be mindful. There are days when it is not easy to be … More Art Post: October 2018
When do we reach out? When we do, how do we look like? What are we sharing? Who is the one beside us, the ones immediately affected? In what manner and in which areas do we connect? What happens when we do? Do we gain or lost part of ourselves? Do we shift, change or … More Art Post – September 2018

How much or little can we see right through? How much can something stand out when it is blended with a bunch of other things? Perhaps if the environment is colourful, the collective beauty of the mosaic is what makes it worth it being lost in it all.
What happens when you blend? What happens when you pick up only one colour? What happens when the strokes are perhaps more like how life really is, blending of different colours that get applied all over? Which parts or shades stand out as the lines go on one direction?
