Loving Vincent

Finally watched Loving Vincent this early morning (9am)!  I actually woke up at around 4:30am and couldn’t fall back to sleep, too excited?  I was able to finish my regular morning routine (i.e. breakfast & newspaper & devotion (sometimes)), then running practice and shower at home before heading out for the cinema.  A very productive Sat. morning!

The movie was pretty good, better than expected actually.  I’ve always been a fan of Van Gogh since visiting the museum dedicated to him in Amsterdam back in 2003 during a grad trip with my UW friends.  I can see a little Van Gogh in me – starting my art journey rather late (after undergrad), simply love painting without seeking recognition, and I can seriously see myself becoming a starving artist just like him if I get serious about doing painting full time (an attractive proposition that often pops up in my mind).

Weekly Update

Caught a cold early this week, had been living most of the week with a runny nose and unwanted tiredness.  Despite the need to rest more, there were some social meet ups I promised to join the week before:

  • Mon: volunteered for the first time with Lizzie Bee to learn how Art can be applied to help the elderly
  • Tue: dim sum with my calligraphy class followed by a visit to a Chinese art exhibition
  • Fri: visited another art exhibition, followed by afternoon tea with a friend and dinner with some old UW classmates

Met some new friends and caught up with some old ones, and the most popular question I got was what I’m doing now for work.  I had trouble answering that question, and usually I just reply saying I’m an artist while handing out my pretty DIY business card.  It’s true, I don’t have any immediate work at the moment and am actually living like an (amateur, starving,…) artist, at least temporarily until I figure out what I wanna do (or what God wants me to do) next in my career.
