is running a contest with very big prizes, I think I'll join in for some fun
, some luck
and have my art exposed. If you're interested, you should join in too [click here
]. The more the merrier. Many times I'd like to participate in a contest, but then there are things getting in the way. This time, even though I didn't create this piece specifically for the contest, I think it may fit in the theme "New Beginning".
Here is the piece I'd like to be in the contest:
THE OTHER SIDEWatercolor, 18x24", paper
There are many reasons I name it this way as well as choose it to be in the contest. For one, I think a person, a problem, or anything will have both bad and good side. You shouldn't judge a person for a downside you accidentally see in him/her, or be pessimistic over an issue in your life. Always keep looking for the other side. Don't lose faith in humanity even if it seems to be going down hill lol Anyway, the open door here also represents a new life, a promising opportunity is waiting for us to dare to take. I know there are many times in our life, we see the chance (usually comes with the risk) very welcoming, but we are too afraid to start again and trade off the current normal/stable life. I don't say this is right or wrong, but if you really feel doing it, just do it. Personally, I made a risky decision and am now walking on an unforeseen path with lots ups and downs; but on the other hand, I feel I am living true to myself
