Space (Part 1)
“I’m finally here,”Herman mumbled as he placed his luggage next to the door.
He cleared his throat several times before knocking on the door three times politely. There was no response, as expected. Before he could fumble for the keys in one of his pockets, the door opened slowly, revealing a neat, basic room.
“Thanks,” he said, glancing briefly around the room. There was a single bed in front, below large windows, as well as a small table and chair adjacent to it. The room looked nicer compared to online advertisement with an underexposed photo.
Herman dragged his luggage inside, before lying on the bed. It was a relief to rest properly after several hours of sitting stiffly in the train carriage filled with snoring passengers. He buried his face into the lavender scented pillow and relaxed in his peaceful space.
In his dream, a lady with long hair sat on the window frame, her legs dangling freely in the air. She looked weightless, like a bird perching on

If I were to paint 2013 on a large canvas, it would look like a giant volcano erupting on an island, where the sea creatures and birds watched from a distance. 

It was volatile, like an explosion never seen before in my life, where the lava engulfed everything in its path.

It used to be vivid in my mind, like heavy brush strokes of colour, but softened to a volatile beauty as time crystallized. In a way, my painting process is a little like that sometimes, where the colours blend into each other after a while.

As I slowed down in the past few months, my mind felt lighter as I let go of the things that were no longer important. It was like sitting at a wooden deck along the beach, where the weathered timber you sit on gives you a grounded feeling. There was no heavy, dangling jewellery or material items holding you down; just a simple, loose tank top and shorts and the warm sun on your skin, while your feet dangled freely above the gentle morning waves. Being under an endless clear blue sky is also quite liberating. I want to row a transparent canoe because it's like floating on water... or just go snorkeling! Ideally, I would like to live near the sea and paint from a hammock if that's even physically possible. I guess I can sketch or paint that if I get insomnia again.

Here's an inspiring natural history video to end the year happily :…

Good art advice from James Gurney, the dinosaur fantasy artist :   and you can check out his Dinotopia artwork here

Lastly, you know you are happy when anything you paint turns out happy...and I wonder what kind of painting 2014 will be.
