” I dream of painting and then I paint my dream.” – Vincent Van Gogh
Painting to me is one of my most cherished talents. It is so special to me, because it always bring back memory of painting with my grandmother Virginia. As a child, I watched her battle lung cancer for 8 years, and through it all I was by her side. After having one and half of her lungs removed, she was mostly bed bound. She didn’t have a lot of energy and strength, but she always had time to spend with me. We would pass the time sitting in her room bonding over books and painting. She introduced to me watercolors and acrylic paint, and taught me about blending and different brush technics. Most of all, she taught me that the beauty of art lays in the heart of the creator. Til this day, I refuse to go school, and take an actual class to learn proper painting skills. I want to carry on her teaching, and hold on to them as long as I can.
So this page is dedicated to her, may she keep watching me from above; and never let me lose sight of my deepest passions.
