Life and a Bowling Pin...




This summer has been the most difficult summer to bear. Transitions have been happening left and right. With life, with my art, and the list can go further. I had to experience a loved one being taken away from me due to lung cancer. It was my first experience, ever, and I can't put into words how much that hurt. My Grandfather passed away on July 1, 2008. My grandfather was a great man who I could have known even better. His compassion and heart proved to show in his ending days, which fortunately i was able to see and experience. I plan on doing more series of work concerning him. I miss him very much... :[




Ever since his death as well, I've been more fascinated with birds...



here's a process of my bowling pin piece for the PIN UP show @ Tender Loving Empire
it's called "I know why the caged bird sings"

FINAL images (sometimes i wish i had a better camera/scanner)
