Hi friends, I would like to share with you my new paintings. This series of artwork is called Memories.
Last year, Paul and I traveled to South East Asia and visited five countries. In this series, I explore my fascination with travel.
When I travel, I love the feeling of freedom, the exoticness of the unknown. To travel well takes an enormous time to plan, which also led me to unplug from Social Media, giving me the time to look up and see the world around me instead of seeing the world through the lenses of my mobile or computer.
What I love most about traveling is navigating and embracing the unpredictability. Your travel experience is as rewarding as you want it to be. In my experience, when Paul and I dropped our boundaries and immerse ourselves in their culture, doors open up for us to countless experiences. We did not let our language barrier stop us from making new friends. And because of our willingness to embrace their culture. Paul and I got invited to their homes and enjoyed their genuine hospitality.
The challenges of travel and seeing the world with a fresh set of eyes only make us discover more about ourselves and our ability to adapt and solve problems as it arises. It opened our perspective and helped us to learn more about ourselves along the way.
Our trip was a life-changing experience, but it also makes Paul and I appreciate our own country and its comfort.
These paintings depict my fascination with the unknown, its beauty, and memories that will last our lifetime. the colors are vibrant and textural which expresses my intense love for the exotic lands.
I feel so fortunate that Paul and I had such a rewarding trip. I wonder when we would have the chance to travel again with the Pandemic looming above us.
I know one thing, as soon as the Pandemic is over, Paul and I will be making plans for our next epic travel.
With Creative Joy,
