So, the idea is to pick a character from my sketchbook each night or so for my daily update on this blog, since i dont have scanner and i cant upload my sketchbook sketches here..

Well then, here's #1 -- a guitarist from my friend's coronation night.

On canvas..

 PS: Holding my own exhibition on my desk, lol.. and yes, that's Woody holding the frame!

I love the textures on canvas, i love the solid paint flowing out of its tube, i love when the paint gets on my clothes and face, i love the chaos when im painting!

And.... here she is !!
So the painting is slightly different from the digital one.. it took me one and half hour to finish..
Anyway, this is my first time using acrylic on canvas. It's been ages since i painted on canvas, and from what i learned today, next time, better to use a good quality brushes to avoid unwanted strokes and other mess..
My centaurette is ready to be exhibited !! =D will take some photos from the exhibition !

"Deer Centaurette"

Some quick editing..

Just something quick for the night.. I needed to experiment on the color before putting her on canvas (yes, it's gonna be exhibited in ACT, click here for info! yeay!)

Anyway, is there any name for half deer half human creature out there ? i wonder...

I miss YOU..

Just something really quick to start the day.. my gosh, i miss to be alive..

yes, you know when you're living to your fullest when you're doin one thing and then you feel like your heart is bursting with joy unexplainable and you say, "i am alive."
That's what happened to me this morning when drawing with my wacom for the first time after almost 2 months..

A love poem from 1896

Fire runs through my body with the pain of loving you

Pain runs through my body with the fires of my love for you

Sickness wanders my body with my love for you

Pain like a boil about to burst with my love for you

Consumed by the fire with my love for you

I remember what you said to me

I am thinking of your love for me

I am torn by your love for me

Pain and more pain

Where are you going with my love?

I am  told you will go from here

I am  told you will leave me here

My body is numb with grief

Remember what i have said,  my love

Good bye, my love, good bye.

This poem, recited by an anonymous Kwakuitl Indian of Southern Alaska to a missionary in 1896, captures the excruciating pain of lost love.

And here's another poem by Russell Kelfer

by Russell Kelfer 
Desperately, helplessly, longingly, I cried;
Quietly, patiently, lovingly, God replied.
I pled and I wept for a clue to my fate . . .
And the Master so gently said, "Wait." 

"Wait? you say wait?" my indignant reply.
"Lord, I need answers, I need to know why!
Is your hand shortened? Or have you not heard?
By faith I have asked, and I'm claiming your Word. 

"My future and all to which I relate
Hangs in the balance, and you tell me to wait?
I'm needing a 'yes', a go-ahead sign,
Or even a 'no' to which I can resign. 

"You promised, dear Lord, that if we believe,
We need but to ask, and we shall receive.
And Lord I've been asking, and this is my cry:
I'm weary of asking! I need a reply." 

Then quietly, softly, I learned of my fate,
As my Master replied again, "Wait."
So I slumped in my chair, defeated and taut,
And grumbled to God, "So, I'm waiting for what?" 

He seemed then to kneel, and His eyes met with mine . . .
and He tenderly said, "I could give you a sign.
I could shake the heavens and darken the sun.
I could raise the dead and cause mountains to run.

"I could give all you seek and pleased you would be.
You'd have what you want, but you wouldn't know Me.
You'd not know the depth of my love for each saint.
You'd not know the power that I give to the faint.

"You'd not learn to see through clouds of despair;
You'd not learn to trust just by knowing I'm there.
You'd not know the joy of resting in Me
When darkness and silence are all you can see.

"You'd never experience the fullness of love
When the peace of My spirit descends like a dove.
You would know that I give, and I save, for a start,
But you'd not know the depth of the beat of My heart.

"The glow of my comfort late into the night,
The faith that I give when you walk without sight.
The depth that's beyond getting just what you ask
From an infinite God who makes what you have last.

"You'd never know, should your pain quickly flee,
What it means that My grace is sufficient for thee.
Yes, your dearest dreams overnight would come true,
But, oh, the loss, if you missed what I'm doing in you.

"So, be silent, my child, and in time you will see
That the greatest of gifts is to truly know me.
And though oft My answers seem terribly late,
My most precious answer of all is still . . . Wait."

You are who you are for a reason -Russell Kelfer-

Finally !
I know it's been long since my last post, but even at this moment i still haven't got any painting to put on here (but i will post some in few days, i promise!)

I just want to share this great poem by Russell Kelfer, (i finally have a favorite poet! well, but i still do like Edgar Allan Poe's)

You are who you are for a reason.
You're part of an intricate plan.
You're a precious and perfect unique design,
Called God's special woman or man.

You look like you look for a reason.
Our God made no mistake.
He knit you together within the womb.
You're just what He wanted to make.

The parents you had were the ones He chose,
And no matter how you may feel,
They were custom-designed with God's plan in mind,
And they bear the Master's seal.

No, that trauma you faced was not easy.
And God wept that it hurt you so;
But it was allowed to shape your heart
So that into His likeness you'd grow.

You are who you are for a reason,
You've been formed by the Master's rod.
You are who you are, beloved,
Because there is a God!

Psalm 23 :1

The very first piece of the series that i have been drawing for a while now..
It was one and a half year ago when someone asked me to draw "God cradling a lamb in HIS arm, with a river on the background.."
i never forgot.. it's just that i never got the right composition and the right picture.. They were all the same with the ones i could find on google..
But 2 months ago, suddenly this picture came into my mind, it was plain clear in my head..

And so.. this is it!

Take MY hand..

A lot of times we think that HE abandons us.
But it's us who let go of HIS hand..
HE never let go..
HE will never let go..

God, help!

"Then you will call upon ME and come and pray to ME, and I will listen to you. You will seek ME and find ME when you seek ME with all your heart." _Jer 29:12-13_
It's just as simple as that.. Such a loving Father =)

What HE has done in me..

I read yaamas' blog this morning on how his life has changed bcoz of God.. And it really touched me becoz quite surprisingly, what happened to him happened to me in the (almost) same way..
I just wanna share about this thing a bit here..

I lived my life in Melbourne for almost 3 years by my own. And there, i was so bound with my solitude and was depressed with loneliness. I chased people away, i made walls and i just wanted to be alone. Im not sure why i did those things, but i reckon i just couldnt accept the changes in my circumstances, since im a type of person who takes long time to adapt with changes. Although i didnt really complain to God for putting me there, but what i said completely explained that i was not happy to be there thou i knew perfectly well that God has put me there for a reason.

I had a dream since i was a kid but as time went by, as i knew about the people who live the same dream, the dream that i wanted to achieve was not based on my childhood's dream anymore, it was for my pride, for my own.. Even though in heart i always praise Him after finishing my drawing, but in the end what i did was all for myself..

But then He touched me.
I was so sick with myself for being lukewarm and completely ignoring HIM when i was back in my comfort zone (my home), I hated myself for being that way while my soul and heart yearning for HIM but my flesh and mind were so weak. And when i thought God has given up on me and left me, HE came to me and touched me. And for the second time i fell in love with HIm again (first time, long time ago) =) At that moment my mind and my heart were just really focused on Him and in a snap my perspectives changed completely.. The vision that He gave me years ago came back to me and i could put away my dream for HIS.. I was foolish because i could've learned so much more from my solitary life in Melbourne, but no regrets coz it's never too late.. And now, since i have completely devoted my life to Him and HIS will, i dont want people to know me for my drawings, i want people to know me for what HE has done in me..

Yes i am now back to my comfort zone (my home) and staying here for good. But i've changed the 'comfort' to 'challenge' zone, becoz everything has changed since i left home for Melbourne. And every problem to solve and challenge to venture are all in here. I could say that my life in Melbourne was a 'training ground'. And the trick is how to perform the good things i've learned from Melbourne here in Indo.

My passion now is Him and to chase His will.. And my dream? That the world will see God through my art.. =) I do not draw for people or for myself anymore, yes i still do drawings for my practice, besides i love drawing beautiful things and telling stories through painting.. But my audience is Him, and everything i draw is for HIS glory.. I praise You, Father..


It is the only place where i can find peace in my house..
It is the only place where i can get away from my troubles..
It is the only place where i can sit quietly and talk to HIM..
It is the only place where i can cry my eyes and my heart out to HIM..
And i know HE is there, and HE responds.. =)
Have a blessed weekend folks!
