TORRENT III


acrylic on canvas
40" x 50"

artwork submitted for Pameran Terbuka 2009
and was picked among the 171 chosen art pieces
from the 381 submitted art pieces
to exhibit at Galeri Shah Alam, Yayasan Seni Selangor.


-------------------------------------------------------------------


Finally, it's done! I'm finally satisfied with this piece. Notice the signature on it? Yes?! I only sign all my pieces once it's done - means no more changes or additional stroke or what-so-ever. Compared to the previous one, I've added the melting wax on top of it with Bebear's scented candle that she got for e last year from Ikea Singapore. Which now makes this artwork heavier compared to before and of course nicer smell! Varnish the circular image.Oh ya, the additional smoke and watermark around it too! I'm so glad that it's done way before the closing date, which is on the May 29, 2009. I must say that this is my most favorite piece and not planning to sell it unless someone willing to pay the price I've quoted. Not quite ready to be parted with this yet...

Plan to send it on Friday. I have a good vibes on this piece. I think Torrent III gonna make it to be display at the gallery and hoping to won the 'Incentive Award' of RM1,000.0 as well. Insya-Allah. My only worries is will it be taken care properly and can it fit my Envee? Hmmm...


"Take What You Take"

A picture paints a thousand words,
As one door closes, another door opens,
And two wrongs don't make a right
Now good things come to those who wait,
Take the highs with the lows dear,
You'll get what your given and everything's gonna be alright.

What the fuck do you know?
Just cos you're old you think your wise,
But who the hell are you though,
I didn't even ask for your advice
You wanna keep your mouth shut,
You wanna take your thoughts elsewhere,
Cos you're doing in my nut,
And do you think I care?

Say what you say, Do what you do,
Feel what you feel, As long as it's real.
I said take what you take and give what you give
Just be what you want, Just as long as it's real.

Now by a horse, I once was told
That all that glitters is not gold
And all that is to fear is fear itself.
This horsey also told me,
I should keep my friends close but my enemies closer,
So as to protect myself.

Torrent III was submitted for the Shah Alam Gallery- Yayasan Seni Selangor on May 24, 2009 and merely a few days ago, I received a called from Fai Zakaria, telling me that Torrent was among the chosen one to be exhibited. I kid you not; I was shocked (in an awesome proud manner, not amazed) to learn that Torrent was picked among the 171 chosen art pieces f(rom the 381 submitted art pieces) that was “tagged” worthy to exhibit. Torrent will on exhibit on the above mentioned gallery until July 28. Please march to Gallery 3 of the Shah Alam Gallery- Yayasan Seni Selangor, to view it.
Fai Zakaria, Congratulations. You are getting closer to the stars.
I still remember the day u were so reluctant to even show friends (close ones too) your pieces, and today, My dearest talented special friend, eight pieces have been sold.
To recollect, Pieces to Sadd of Singapore, six gorgeous pieces to the Sultan of Pahang and finally yesterday another piece called Retrospectively I. It was a pleasure accompanying you to Putrajaya, to deliver the “her”. I am so proud of U!

Anonymous - Bebear, please stop using this 'Anonymous'...

And yes, thank you. I won't be here if it's not because of you and all your courage. I owe you BIG TIME! thank you, thank you, thank you!

Tho you're not there (virtually) during Sultan Pahang's Installation but you're on the phone through the process. I'm still glad for the effort! Thanks Bebear. And yes, it was a great trip and experience during Pieces to Singapore and same goes to Retrospectively to Putrajaya *muah*

Zillion thanks!
I love you Bebear!
