Thank you, +Kim Hine When I get better with oil pastel, I'm still a beginner in this medium. Just use it, Kim. I'm sure you can handle it.

In “The Lord of the Ring: the Fellowship of the Ring“, Elrond said that the race of men had failed when Isildur refused to throw the ring into the fire of Mount Doom to have it destroyed.

I wonder, what if it was Elrond who was holding the Ring. Would the elf have enough strength against its seduction?  Did he fully understand the nature of the Ring?

And what about myself?

When I said that my parents were quick to be negative, that my former landlord was difficult?  Did I fully understand their situations?

But I do know that my heart is not pure, and that it is not free of desire.  And I don’t have the strength to fight against the seduction of the Ring.

So I keep drawing.  So I keep painting.

For in the middle of messy dust and paint, my heart may experience something pure for the briefest moments.

Random thoughts as an artist watches "The Lord of the Rings", and what the Ring has to do with her drawing activities. Totally random and absurd.

He also talks about drawing in a way that a kung fu master would about martial arts, or an enlightened monk would about the thousands of miles he's walked...

Why my grandmother cannot live with me.
Naturally, she can be her or his model, but here is so much more to what grandmas can do. I hope you and your grandma will be inspired.

This morning, my 5-year-old took a photo of my with his iPad (which he named Wii-Gee), and used it as a reference to draw my portrait.
I was very impressed as I told him, “Wow, Alan, it looks great!  It looks quite Picasso!”
Alan asked, “Who is Picasso?”
“A very great artist.” I answered.
“Mama, you are a very great artist, too.” Alan replied, matter-of-factly.
And that made my day!  I am FEELING GREAT!
Have you got a child or grandchild who totally admires you and your work?  Aren’t we lucky?
Is this 5-year-old on the way to become a great artist? His drawing certainly looks Picasso!
