ROSE - my first painting 2009

TITLE : ROSE
ARTIST : LINUS CHUNG
MEDIUM : ACRYLIC ON CANVAS
SIZE : 43cm x 43cm
YEAR : 2009

This is my new painting entitled 'Rose' but before i get into it allow me to quickly say something...

Wait...didn't we just shout Happy New Year??? Whoever coined the phrase 'time flies' is a genius.We have only 11 months left into 2009. Like any of you, I am tired chasing time but January has been a great month for me...for one I kept to 7 resolutions and am aiming to be keeping to all my resolutions.Here are the 7 i managed to keep.

1.Find God -been regularly attending church and praying
2.Read More-finished two books in january Teh of Piglet and Midnight Clear
3.Charity-Raise a small sum for Gaza
4.Blog regularly-you my dear readers are testament to this
5.Diary -kept to an entry a day
6.Short film one per month - finished PO
7.Paint-one canvas a month


I intend to be even more fiercely chasing my set goals/resolutions because in this life sometimes you really have to just make aim and hit them...today I hit the last one before february...yay!


Sometimes if we let time go...it really just runs away...and it been a while since I painted, so I made a decision...set up a still life, invited a friend josephine over and discipline myself to paint over the weekend.

For me painting is very enjoyable...you look at a subject so closely that you really take the time to appreciate it...on the side, you are mixing colours and applying it on canvas creating a picture. The process of creating for me has always been so satisfying...

As you paint, the observations you have are delicious...You look at little details like a small fold on the paper or how powder dust collects...that really entices our sense to see. It is also a challenge as you mix colours to create just the right colours,tones and hues needed to paint the picture. This process both challenges you...while teaching you to appreciate how rich the colours in our lives really are.

Painting is also something that you can do that gives you a gainful distraction while leaving your mind to wander...to meditate about things in life or to simply enjoy a good conversation with a friend present...

Painting also literally gives you a new eye or train you to see more things...as I was explaining to my friend josephine who was my first companion in painting in 2009...look at the still life ahead of you(an arrangement of old fashioned mirror and face powder...look at it properly and now try to look at it from various perspective...you could see it as 'my grandmother's makeup' 'an excited young girl table in the 1950s' or maybe 'a prostitute's makeup kit in the 1950's'. 'You can even see it as the precious poccessions of a poor woman and that's all she sadly has' added josephine...I agree.


I intend to make one or two paintings every months of 2009...the sessions are on any saturday when I am free...if any of you are keen to join me for painting at my house on a weekend, call me...

Linus, i not sure were u the one wearing the ChieongSam in the mirror or not but it doesn't a matter now. How I interpreted it was the background color give me a creepy feel over the overall tone; i found it must be a beauty ghost who like make up very much in their past life! and still he/she likes it.

Hello everyone!
I would like to burn a theme at this forum. There is such a nicey, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I make money with the help of these programs.
I don't have problems with money now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I make 2G daily, and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I'm very close at catching at last a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my blog to get additional info.
