“New Year: In memory of the 27 souls of Sandy Hook Elementary School” ~Watercolor in Berkeley paper 2012 has been a brave year for me. I want to live. I need to feel alive in what I do.

On God

with 9 Comments

I have known God since I was a little girl when my parents enrolled me in a Catholic school. I know him in the stories of the Bible. I know that I cannot see him but I can possibly hear or feel him. But he sees us wherever we are. God is my everything. Words cannot be written to explain the grandiosity of God. Arts cannot be created to reveal the beauty of his majesty. All I know is this: … Read More

My triumph and defeat lies in the way I think about myself and my circumstances. I compare myself to a tree that has been stripped from its leaves due to the changing seasons and yet it still stands tall and beautiful. We have all experienced hardships and trials in life. And always we emerged out of it stronger than ever. Often we feel like giving up. We complain. We blame. We cry. But just like the bare trees we still … Read More

Least Favorite Paint Colors

with 7 Comments

My least favorite colors would be the dull colors. In my palette I rarely use Prussian Blue, Burnt Umber, Black and Earth Green. Though Prussian Blue isn’t dull I am not sure why I seldom use it. I adore Phthalo and Cobalt Blue better. I also splatter a bit of Yellow Ochre for a bit of drama. I love the result. I love how we can just use any colors and paint something wonderful. No matter how these colors are … Read More

Taking Leap of Faith

with 28 Comments

Taking a leap of faith is like taking that first (scary!) step towards the beautiful dark tunnel of the unknown and then emerging with a sense of hope, strength and freedom. Pure joy. I always listen to my heart where God speaks in me before I take any chances. Is what I want to do align with what God wants me to do? Is what I am about to do bring Him glory? I listen in stillness and in solitude. … Read More

We don’t have fall in our country. But I am celebrating Fall with all of you who are experiencing it right at this moment. I love the glorious colors and the shedding away of the old. Nature is beautiful. Inspired by fall again… I painted Medley of Red Orange for a friend who is hosting her baby shower this Saturday. I cannot describe the freedom I have felt while working on this painting. Imagine dripping, splattering and engulfing of colors … Read More
