"a caterpillar doesn't just grow into a butterfly. a caterpillar must undergo metamorphosis, and a cocoon is where a caterpillar risks it all: enters total chaos, undergoes total rebuilding, and is born to a new way of living. only in taking the risk of entering that inert cocoon can the caterpillar go from dormancy to potency, from ugliness to beauty."

let's paint!

It has been said that art is a tryst,
for in the joy of it maker and beholder meet
.
--Kojiro Tomita

as i've mentioned before, one of the things that i did on my last day as a 22-year old was to go painting in starmall...

i successfully transformed a pre-designed plaster of paris from its boring white look to definitely something else.

first, my block looked so devoid of colors...


then, colors crept in...


finally, the flowers bloomed!


actually, the people manning the "let's paint" booth didn't think black would make a nice background for the flowers, but i didn't mind them. i knew and had faith in what i wanted so i followed my own heart. in the end, they liked what i did. i liked it, too. i still do.

thanks to my friend, yoni, for taking me there. her own block underwent a similar transformation.
