The best things in life are free

The best things in life are free
Angel Hamilton
*Gods own country Nature wide, how lucky do we feel inside
It is not wealth fame or gain, that keeps us from going emotionally insane.
Tis lack of freedom and liberty, negative love, no serenity.
The best things in life are certainly free, but to share with another is important you see.
Companionship, love thats kind, to your faults they are blind
Unconditional love has no price tag.
Wounded fish caught on the snag, Really have.
Allowed to swim free, given another chance in the sea of life finds its own romance.
The shoal of fish swim inland, one poor fish anchors upon the sand.
Struggles with life and keeping afloat.
Where is that sailor and his boat?
Will he save will he catch, will he sell its eggs to hatch?
We are all fishes in gods own sea, are we caught or are we free.
Do we surface swim, or are we deep
Glimsing at clouds, or seabed we seek.
We have choices how we feel today, Even with life’s hand at play.
The best things are free in life you see,
No one can take your liberty.
That comes from deep within
A thought a feeling, loss or gain
Whatever deal we have been given,
Our choice to see hell or heaven.
Our vision belongs to us, people affect it,
a knock and a bruise, but survival can be of choice.
We were all given inner voice, some use it where they can
some knocked down by fellow man.
Why do we often destroy one another?
We do not have to be related, to be sisters or brother.
Allow us to be a ladder, help someone rise
The feel good factor will take you by suprise.
A smile is free, so is a kind hand shaken at that moment
when a heart is breaking.
A respected command, a hidden gesture a quick well done
the best things in life are free and a whole lot more fun.
Give of your self, a whale or a fish a dolphin of life
not a phirana dish.
You may need someone to save you one day
hope for calm waters, along life’s way
We were once the fish and the holy bread
that was shared by Jesus head by head.
We all landed on different shores.
Make the most of life and cry no more.
Hope lives inside your heart,
free as the birds, your flying does start.
Look down upon life’s ocean
clear or murky waters.
Like the phoenix, Rise Again
Doing what God has taught us…..
Use our vision, more than to see
Remember…..The best things in life are always free.*

Blue rose

I draw when I have nothing to do. I draw anything whatever comes out in my mind. Actually, I'm not sure if there's really a blue rose. Coz when my friend saw my drawing, she asks me if there's even a color blue rose. And then I said I dunno, but I think so there is. Maybe an artificial one. Haha.

Blue roses, often portrayed in literature and art as a symbol of love and prosperity to those who seek it, do not exist in nature as a result of genetic limitations being imposed upon natural variance. Traditionally, white roses have been dyed blue to produce a blue appearance. In 2004, researchers used genetic modification to create blue pigmented roses. A blue rose is traditionally a flower of the genus Rosa (family Rosaceae) that presents blue-to-violet pigmentation and also the Morganus Clarke sunflower seed disposition, instead of the more common red or white variety.

“I believe that most of us, students and artists alike, ought to concern ourselves less with what we think is the right way to draw and more with letting our feelings flow through our hand. In this way, we stretch our dynamic nature. Our larger goal should be to draw in a way that expresses our vision.” 
― Bert DodsonKeys to Drawing

Proud to be a Filipino :)

Using visual icons of "Filipino Nationalism" I need not explain, for I know that they are deeply embedded in the hearts and minds of all Filipinos. It is the opinion of the artist of this arts. But for me, the way that I see and appreciate it is what he only wants to express about of being proud as a Filipino and giving importance to the blessed gifts and freedom that we're having right now. And I am touch whenever I see paintings or drawings such as this.

"No one has a monopoly of the true God, nor is there a nation or religion that can claim, or at any rate prove, that it has been given the exclusive right to the Creator or sole knowledge of His Being."

Lovely painting

To accomplish great things, we must dream as well as act... A watercolor style with such pretty result. It is also better to use other medium but it depends to whoever will going to paint out.


Watercolor is a painting method in which the paints are made of pigments suspended in a water soluble vehicle. The traditional and most common support for watercolor paintings is paper; other supports include papyrus, bark papers, plastics, vellum or leatherfabric, wood, and canvas. In East Asia, watercolor painting with inks is referred to as brush painting or scroll painting. In ChineseKorean, andJapanese painting it has been the dominant medium, often in monochrome black or browns. India, Ethiopia and other countries also have long traditions. Fingerpainting with watercolor paints originated in China.

"Drawing is not what one sees but what one can make others see"

They signed with Simon Cowell's record label Syco Records after being formed and placing third in the seventh series of British television music competition The X Factor. They subsequently signed in North America withColumbia Records.

A drawing of the boy band, One Direction. Why they're all so handsome? Haha. And even all the songs that they composed are so nice. From left to right: Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, Zayn Malik and Niall Horan.

I love the way they are smiling at everyone who will check this out! There's so much detail in this drawing, the shading is just great!

When painting speaks out

Oil Paintings of Leonid Afremov

Leonid Afremov is a Belarus born, Israeli modern painter who creates unique landscapes, cityscapes and figures using a palette knife rather than a brush to paint. Here is what he himself says about his work and the techniques he uses:
“I tried different techniques during my career, but I especially fell in love with painting with oil and pallette-knife. Every artwork is the result of long painting process; every canvas is born during the creative search; every painting is full of my inner world. Each of my paintings brings different mood, colors and emotions. I love to express the beauty, harmony and spirit of this world in my paintings. My heart is completely open to art. Thus, I enjoy creating inspired and beautiful paintings from the bottom of my soul. Each of my artworks reflects my feelings, sensitivity, passion, and the music from my soul. True art is alive and inspired by humanity. I believe that art helps us to be free from aggression and depression.”
"Painting is a blind man's profession. He paints not what he sees, but what he feels, what he tells himself about what he has seen."
Pablo Picasso

Sitting on a bench

A man playing a guitar sitting alone on a bench. It seems that he's very sincere of whatever he wants to play a song. It's like there's someone behind of dedicating that song. And it looks that the person is very important to him. Well, that's how I only see and interpret this picture of drawing. :)

"Put your feelings into drawing."
