Never Delay: Broken-Hearted Jim Carrey Inspired Paint to Heal Life Hack for Toodles X Florals Works, A Speedy Recovery For Your Skills Too

Where do broken hearts go? Here’s the secret sauce. My friend revealed at an early stroll by the bay: Paint to heal a broken heart. He told Jim Carrey is also doing the same. Here are my priceless life lessons in a year.

I was doubtful of my cools and warms. I muted the subject. The foreground and middle ground are noisy.

Toodles X Florals is a project that I made last 2017 when I was coping with my bipolar weathered emotions dealing with heartbreak.

Toodles. Doodles that look like noodles.

Toodles are swirls that I got addicted with. It’s a graphite tonal range training. That’s another talk. I’ll feature my Strathmore journal next week. 

I later on fell in love with colors. Faces were forever a joy.  It paved way to self discovery, an instant f*ck boys immunity, and a priceless learning season.

My works may not be as cohesive. These are the pieces that made me so alive in the moments when I felt I’m six feet under.

“Rise” I was observing how colors moved. I tried Holbein, Winsor and Newton Cotman’s, Shin Han, and Life After Breakfast Handmade Watercolors in one piece. I have seen how each pigments reacted to each other to build one workable piece.

What Eggs Do You Like? 
Remember that Runaway Bride Julia Roberts scene when she made a lot of egg dishes to find out what she really wanted? The metaphor is the same as picking what you are most passionate about. Experiment on materials. This is the season of give-no-f*cks. Enroll in classes that expand your horizons.

Black and White 

Learn from the darkest darks and lightest lights. Above all find the light in everything that you do. Identify the cool and warm tones. Push every time you make your work.

I forgot what I titled you but I can feel how happy I was when I made this.

Have A Role Model

Why not be an apprentice for someone who is so damn good at what they do? Motivational Life Coach Les Brown recommends to align yourself with people who can empower you. If you go with a bunch of losers you’ll unconsciously acquire their habits. You don’t want that deary. 

Immortalize your self at a certain period in time. Don’t wait for another tomorrow for your yesterday. Make your now.

Let’s warm up our toes. 

Get back to work.

Pursonalized: Handpainted Purses for Everyone

Flashback! Our taste level was once zero. Thanks to our parents who had chosen the warmest pastel-colored knitted pair of socks for our innocent toes.

Shine in your way.

In school, we were preconditioned to wear uniforms. Fashion was conformity. Our schools stamped stars on our hands for wearing them appropriately. Those who break the rules were punished.

We all had our beauty boo boos and outfit misfit moments. Thrift shops we’re such a treasure then. Hand me down clothings were another awesome stash for those who have siblings.

As we grew older, we get more freedom. We get to dress down on Fridays at work. Off we go to designer shops offering what’s us. Our style was rewarding.  

We were so obsessed on what’s trendy. We never thought that our lingering imagination can be cooler once pursonalized
