I loved to try to describe my friends Ni Nyoman Sanis art language in her woman. On the second picture her art isRead more

An artist’s courage

Yesterday I had a meeting with a friend in Singapore that used to paint for a while to earn money for her art classes and later on for university. When I was 14 I sold horse portraits, horses basically had been my only motive since I was 7. At that age, I wasn’t as nervous as I am now, nor was my friend that sold her art because her mother told her that she needed to find a way ifRead more
