I drew this illustration of a closed huge gate at the end of pine trees road that can be seen from a lake where it reflections reflected on the water as my expression of how I feel toward this new normal. I think it pretty much sums it.
The uncertainty, about the future…
Some days I pictured the gate open and I can see sunshine and rainbow, some days I pictured it open and it’s all full with dark forces. But that’s not the worst part, the worst is when I pictured it can’t be opened even when I’d tried so hard banging on it to open…
I know it’s hard to stay positive nowadays, everything is sucks for fork-shake! Sigh 😦 Let’s just try so stay calm and breathe….
I keep thinking and saying that things will get better but even I’m not so sure. Maybe it won’t, maybe it will, guess we can only wait and see while doing our part by staying at home and be grateful, just because even when what we’re in is dull somehow but boy I tell you, out-there there are many unfortunate souls which live is a living hell. So help (donate) and spread love whenever you can.
I can’t really do nothing much since I’ve lost my job from the beginning of this quarantine (no thanks to you virus!). At least I still can stand on my own, I don’t know until when, but I’ll give it a good fight.
So maybe things will not get better but I’m sure we all be okay.
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”
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.
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?
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 🙂
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:
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?
