My Painted Soul.

This weeks PhotoHunt theme is Painted. I thought long and hard about what to share. I wanted to take a photo of my classroom wall which has a garden theme “painted” in it, but since I didn’t really use paint to make it (I used paper and glued them to the wall) I opted on this instead.

The painting of the mandala in the bottom left hand side is my art piece! A year and a half ago, Filipino artists everywhere were invited by an up and coming magazine entitled “Art in Site” to participate in their Covers Project. The goal was to create 3000 unique covers for each of the 3000 inaugural issues they were printing. During the launch of the magazine, over 1000 of the magazines were displayed at the Ayala Museum. It seemed improbable to find mine in the stacks but after looking around, my cousin found my piece 🙂

This piece was entitled “A Million Little Pieces of Me”. I painted it with glitter pens in the midst of a very dark and trying time in my life. In many ways, it represented who I was at that time in my life and in my quest to piece together all the million pieces of me in search of wholeness. It is indeed, my painted soul.

    This is a lovely piece of work… great job. Sometimes the art or music or other project helps us sort all the life situations out. Have a great weekend.

    i am not an artist but i tried to be one… pero yung pagiging artist pala it takes more than than… kasi dapat nasa dugo at kalamnan mo talaga.. ehehe
