Quarantine Art and Thoughts, day 23: Oblivion

Just today my guy told me that it felt like we’re in the Zoo minus the visitors and without the zoo keeper who take care and feed us. I also saw Ellen today and she said, we’re like in jail. I dunno which one is better/worse.

Saw some people panicking over another news that says this pandemic might last for two years. I mean why panic? We should know better, not to act like I know everything but then, over 100 years ago some other people gone through this before, and it lasted that long, with ugly aftermath.
Why don’t people study or read stuffs? Wiki is just one click away, it’s not like you gotta find the renowned philosopher for the answers or go to the library. This kind of thing happened before and written, the one so called History?
Why do people keep on making the same mistake?
Why does history repeated itself?
Why can’t we learn from other people mistake?
Why do we have to make our own mistake?
Why don’t people listen? If only we stop talking even for just a little and star listening, things will be different, I think.
Sighs… I thought we’ll have better luck with the technologies that exist in this 22nd century, but I guess we’re not, just because many of us are just ignorance, but I’m still hoping, that we’ll know better and we’ll get better.

Just now I finished making this quarantine art challenge for day 23 with theme “family”

Oblivion

Story behind this artwork:
This is me in my tiny apartment looking through the mirror with my thoughts, no facial expression just because I don’t really know how I feel about this new normal… 😶
If you see through the mirror, you can see a volcano, a shy sun and a coconut tree. Well I live in Midwest, so such thing don’t exist, but you can find those things in my homeland, the tropical island, I drew those since I’ve been thinking a lot about home any family, from what’s happening in this world todays being away from them for far and for way too long doesn’t do me good.
One pillow says “HOPE Springs Eternal” an idea that I always like to have during the toughest time, yep, one can only hope…
I’m naturally a happy-go-lucky person, I live at the present, so no matter what I’ll always try to find those happy colors and elements in life to keep me sane.

Oh well, don’t lose Hope and Stay Happy all!

Quarantine Art and Thoughts, Day 21: Stay Happy

Stay Happy is my life motto, my tag for this website is StayHappy, I even got a tattoo on my inner right arm facing me written in Greek (the translation might me wrong) as a self reminder to Stay Happy. I greet people and wish them StayHappy. As possible as I can I use StayHappy every-time of every-day.

To me being/staying happy is important, why? well, what’s the point of continue living if you’re not? what about you?

So now that we are all here, adjusting to the “new normal” that made us crazier and even more depress everyday, I hope we all could find some kind of inner peace that will keep us sane and still be thankful for whatever reason (there’s always something to be thankful for).

Someday it will all make sense.

I made this artwork on my day 10 of quarantine art challenge that I followed and made me happy since I get to do some art everyday with different theme, it gave me purpose, something to look forward to, even just buy stay at home. The theme for this piece is Sunshine, what do you think?

Stay Happy

Story behind the artwork:
A human is happy watering her flowers and plants in her tiny indoor garden in her tiny but chic apartment with stunning view of the ocean, volcano and sunrise. On her wall there are couple of cute wall-arts and one is a typography written Stay Happy 🙂

Quarantine Day 18; 25 more days to go…

If nothing change. Guess we’ll never really know now. Don’t you think so?
On my last blog I said that I’ll be posting the second part of the Quarantine Challenge that I follow from which I thought going to end by the end of March, but it didn’t, no thanks to you virus 😦

Anyhoo, I’m thankful and grateful that I’m still in here at home, still safe and sane (not so sure about this), happy (I try to) and healthy (keeping a good diet by cooking and eating yummy foods and drinks)

So here are some other part of the artsy artworks that I made over the last few days:

Left to Right:
First Row – Dancing In The Moon Light | Different Person Different Perception | Over The Rainbow
Second Row – Stay Happy | Please Stay At Home
Third Row – A Day At The Museum | Cyborg Lady | Rise & Shine Sleepyhead

I think I’ll start posting the story behind every artwork that I’d created one by one. What do you think? Do you think it’s a good idea? I mean, it’ll keep me busy and keep me sane hehehe, or the opposite 😛 plus I’ll give you something to read too! (as if there are people that are actually reading my poor poor blogs)

Let me know what you think, I would like to know 🙂 and also how do you minus the domino effects of all this, the new normal?

Alright then, stay at home and stay safe!

See you in the next blog 🙂

Hang in there! We’re halfway there!

Yep! Couldn’t say it better. Just gotta hang!

How’s everyone doing by the way? No worries, all of us all over the globe is pretty much doing the same thing, doing our part to stop the spread of this horrible super tiny thingy and help safe life. Mostly by staying at home, of course 🙂

It started to get harder everyday, isn’t it? I feel you. I am the same, it’s been a week and I don’t think I can do it any longer but just gotta power through! Yesterday was the first time in a week where I walked out of my crib for like 5 minutes just to check on the mail. Crazy ha?

What about you? What you do to kill time? Watching too much news? Where 90% of it were all bad? And go you even more depressed? I tried to keep my distance in absorbing it but somehow it got me, it gave me anxiety throughout my body not my mind, since I keep trying to stay calm by doing some cleaning and making lotsa arts. Funny how it works.

Anyway, I’m not going to bore you with all thing about the super tiny thingy and its domino effect to our life, love ones and society. I’m just hoping that everyone who’s reading thing this are in good health and at peace.

About the making art that keeping me busy and sane, so I joined the quarantine challenge by an art gallery in Pennsylvania and so far it makes me look forward to wake up in the morning everyday and see what they got for the challenge and working my creative ideas on how I wanna put it into drawing or painting. You know as an artist there are moments where you just blank and don’t even know where to start the first line.

Here are the 6 artworks that I created over the first 6 days of quarantine:

Left to Right
Challenge Day 1: Circle – My Art Title: Lonely Bunny
Challenge Day 2: Spring – My Art Title: First Day of Spring
Challenge Day 3: Books – My Art Title: Never Judge A Book By Its Cover
Challenge Day 4: Friendship – My Art Title: I Am My Only Friends
Challenge Day 5: Purple – My Art Title: Purple Fairy
Challenge Day 6: Water – My Art Title: Fishbowl Mermaid

I’ll be posting the second half portion of this quarantine once it done. We’ll make it through!

Stay Safe&Sane, StayHappy&Healthy!
Stay at Home, Save Lives

Endymion is a poem by John Keats first published in 1818 by Taylor and Hessey of Fleet Street in London. It begins with the line “A thing of beauty is a joy for ever”.

I remember vividly looking at this words written on a fine peace of art at my GrandPa desk when I was little, back then I didn’t know what’s the meaning, but I think I knew what joy is. These words somehow grew on me, I grew up and liking cute happy stuffs as it gave me joy 😊

Now that I’m all grown up, by the end of year I decided to start making/creating more joyous artsy artworks and share it with all of you guys, in hope it’ll bring you happiness too!

Here are a few of my recent works that’s available for you to purchase at my tiny art store
